Exploring District


           2016 Exploring Marks

The Exploring District of the Las Vegas Area Council supports the Explorers of Southern Nevada and the Colorado River region of Arizona and California. Areas include the entire Las Vegas valley and surrounding cities.

Exploring is an integral part of the Learning for Life career education program. It is a co-ed program developed for youth who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) to 20 years old. Exploring is a worksite based program designed to give students hands on opportunities to explore their career interests as they make decisions about their future. Most posts meet once or twice a month to hear speakers, participate in activities related to their career interests and build relationships with professionals in the given industry.

Adults: Volunteer , learn more at http://www.exploring.org/

Youth: If you are a male or female between 14 and 20 years old, you can get started in Exploring today! Simply contact your Exploring Executive to help decide which Explorer Posts you are interested in.
