2013 National Exploring Journey to Excellence Award
The new National Exploring Journey to Excellence Award changes the basic way we measure and recognize success in Exploring. Posts can qualify for a Bronze, Silver or Gold level of achievement. The objectives were developed following extensive research into proven indicators of enduring post programs. In planning your strategy, use actual numbers from the previous renewal year to chart your progress. Use the criteria in planning your strategy for the coming year to guide your performance improvement. The post youth officers should take the lead in making this assessment.

Be a Career Speaker!
As part of the Exploring program we work with schools to send in community members to talk about their career choices.
