  Fire and Emergency Services Explorer Program 

The Explorer program is a hands-on career exploration and leadership program developed by the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women between the ages of 14 to 21 years. The program is designed to spark interest in the Fire and Emergency Service fields. The City of Minneapolis is dedicated to ensuring that our workforce reflects the diversity of our community and what better way to do this than to ensure future generations of firefighters are homegrown!  This program will introduce young adults to the elements that make a career in firefighting both challenging and rewarding. Participants will be exposed to community service activities, day-to-day firefighter operations, and leadership development skills. 


The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.  For more than a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes and, through over a century of experience, knows that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.  To receive more information please fill out the contact Information Below.
