Fire Service Exploring is a program for young men and women who are 14 years of age (and have completed the eighth grade) or are 15 to 20 years old. Adults are selected by the participating organization for involvement in the program.
The Falcon Fire Service Exploring program provides experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Explorers are ready to investigate the meaning of interdependence in their personal relationships and communities.
Youth can also participate in local, area, regional,and national conferences, competitions, and academies such as the National Fire/Emergency Services Conference, all with support from the U.S. Fire Administration, National Volunteer Fire Council, International Association of Fire Chiefs, and F.E.M.A.
Learning for Life programs are designated for all groups from kindergarten through age 20. Youth participation is open to any youth in the prescribed age group for that particular program. Adults are selected by the participating organization for involvement in the program. Color, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, economic status or citizenship is not criteria for participation.
It is the mission of Learning for Life to enable young people to become responsible individuals by teaching positive character traits, career development, leadership, and life skills so they can make ethical choices and achieve their full potential.
Learning for Life strives to be the foremost co-educational youth program for character and career development.
