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.
Health Explorers 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.
