Albany--A new program is trying to help young people in Albany explore potential careers.

Explorer Post will connect middle and high school students with professionals and sponsor activities in a variety of job fields.

It's a partnership between the Boy Scouts, the PRIDE Youth Sports Development Program, and Albany Tech.

About 50 to 60 young men and women are expected to enroll.

Organizers plan to have the program up and running by next school year.

"We'll be having the opportunity to get kids as early as 14 to 20 to get them to start looking at their career options," Patrick Wise, PRIDE Program.

"It's a good thing, it will help them learn about what the want to do in their future, a couple of years from now instead of just trying to figure it out," Benjamin Brown, Westover Graduate.

Students between the ages of 14 to 20 who want to participate can enroll by calling (229) 432-2999 for More Information.
