Career Exploring Program

Career Exploring Program
This exciting new program at SVMHS will introduce high school and college students to careers though business mentors. Staff and volunteers at SVMHS will serve as mentors and program advisors to participating students as they learn about opportunities in the healthcare field through hands-on activities, leadership development programs and community service projects.


Career Exploring is a worksite-based program for student volunteers 15 through 20 years old. The purpose of the Exploring program is to provide real world career experiences and help students achieve college and career success through leadership and character development, social and professional networking and community service.

Exploring is a national program, established in 1956 through the Boy Scouts of America and impacts over 100,000 high school students each year. Businesses and community organizations initiate a specific Career Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of youth in the community. The result is a program of activities that helps teens pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.
