Ketchum Career Explorers

Explorer FocusDuring the 2010-11 school year, our church, in conjunction with the Ga-Du-Gi program of the Cherokee Nation, received a charter from the Boy Scouts of America to launch a new Career Explorers Troop.   This program helps students investigate the question, “What in the world will I do after high school?”  Adult mentors assist student leaders to plan and facilitate events.  Field trips, speakers, and shadowing experiences help troop members to develop important life skills, while exploring educational and career opportunities.

 

This year’s highlight was a trip to Oklahoma City.  Students toured the OKC Bombing Memorial and the State Capitol Building.  In addition to learning about Oklahoma state history and government, troop members heard presentations from legislators and lobbyists regarding career opportunities in public service.  A “life on campus” tour is being planned for the near future.
