  • engage in practical, real and meaningful hands-on experiences
  • develop career and personal skills
  • gain insight into future vocations
  • discover opportunities to help others
  • find a positive alternative to harmful youth activities, such as drug abuse and gang involvement

To become an Explorer, young men and women between the ages of 14 and 19 must meet the following requirements:

  • Have at least a "C" (2.0) grade point average on the last two report cards;  
  • No physical handicaps that could cause injury to himself/herself or jeopardize other program participants; 
  • Must not have had any serious contacts with the police, no arrests and no convictions.

Each applicant must pass an oral interview, background investigation, and medical examination and successfully complete the 12 week Explorer Academy in order to obtain permanent Explorer status.   After completion of the Academy, Explorers attend weekly meetings and participate in assigned details.
