Become An Explorer Mentor

Show Off Your Talents And Impact The Future!

The Explorers program is a very short job shadow designed to introduce students to a career they are interested in. Mentors sign up first and then the students choose specifically which roles are most appealing to them. Students travel directly to the industry site to see the mentor in action, and learn about the career journey that brought them to where they are now. 

Mentors can sign up to host on multiple dates and are encouraged to take multiple students at a time (we find students acclimate a little quicker when they are not alone). The power of this experience is that often is the beginning of a professional network for students and complete eye opener to the opportunities that exist here in Kent County. 

EXPLORERS SESSIONS run from 3:30-5:00 PM on November 2, December 7, March 1, and May 3.
