Erie County Exploring Programs

What is Exploring?

Exploring is the career education program of Boy Scouts of America. We offer hands on career experiences that students can't get anywhere else. Students are immersed in a particular career field and get to meet with local business leaders, educators, and those who work day-to-day in a career of their interest. They'll have the opportunity to practice what they might do in that career and ask questions that can only be answered by those who've experienced the career first hand. Below is a list of all programs available in Erie County this school year.

St. Vincent’s Health Careers: This is an incredible program that takes students through various departments within St. Vincent’s health system. Students will get hands on practice in several careers and the opportunity to meet with department heads from around the hospital. Open house is November 7th at 6:00pm in the hospital cafeteria! Registration for THIS PROGRAM ONLY is $20.

Fire Fighting and EMS: This program is a year-round program based in Union City and open to students from across the county. If students are interested in fire fighting or emergency services as a potential career, they can contact Jared Magoon directly at who will connect them with the leadership of this program to arrange for a meeting.

Business Careers: COMING SOON! Gannon University will host this program starting in early 2019. Students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of careers that would fall under the category of business. Topics may include Human Resources, Stock markets, financial planning, marketing, entrepreneurship, management, and general business practices.


Important Note:Students may attend 1 or all of the Exploring programs as they choose. The registration fees will typically be $36 this year, unless a specific program has an additional cost (though we do not anticipate this to be the case).
