Exploring in Action

  

Learning for Life is a career awareness and character education program that works with schools and businesses throughout the metropolitan Denver area. It is the mission of Learning for Life to enable young people to become responsible individuals by teaching positive character traits, career development, leadership and life skills so they can make ethical choices and achieve their full potential. Through partnerships with local schools and businesses, Learning for Life is able to offer students the opportunity to investigate careers while learning about themselves.

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. See our video.

To see more pictures of students exploring other career options, look through our photo gallery.
