What is Exploring?

Imagine getting a head start on your future. 

Exploring is a career awareness program for young men and women ages 14 through 20. Exploring is a worksite-based program that help match your career ambitions with the community, corporate and business resources of Tulsa.


How It Works

Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate a specific Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of activities that help youth pursue their special interests, grow and develop.
