Getting Your Post Up and Running

Organizing an Explorer post (group) in your organization is easy! Just follow the Five-Step Plan for Post Program Development:

  1. Organization's Commitment: Secure a commitment from the chief executive officer of the participating organization.

  2. Career Opportunities Development Meeting: A training and program development meeting for post adult leaders conducted by an Exploring program representative.

  3. Post Firstnighter Meeting: A special and exciting hands-on meeting held annually by each post to recruit new youth participants.

  4. Post Activities Development Meeting: A program planning meeting with Explorers' input to reach agreement on post monthly activities.

  5. Explorer Post Officers' Seminar: Training meeting for elected post officers.
