City of Yuma Police Explorers


What is Exploring?

Exploring is part of the Learning for Life career education program for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) or 15 through 20 years old.

The purpose of Exploring is to provide experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Explorers are ready to investigate the meaning of inter dependence in their personal relationships and communities.

Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities.
