The Phillies Explorers program is a part of the Learning for Life branch of the Boy Scouts of America. It is an after school program offered to high school girls and boys who are at least 15 years of age, or have completed 8th grade and have an interest in learning about a career in the sports industry.
Over the course of nine sessions, students will have the opportunity to spend an afternoon every other week at Citizens Bank Park learning about careers in the sports industry. Each meeting will feature different employees from our front office who will discuss their job and their career path. Through a hands-on group project, each student will trace the steps that the Phillies front office takes to seamlessly execute what you see at the ballpark.
In 2010/11, over 30 Explorers candidates were exposed to a variety of occupations offered within the Phillies organization. Participants heard from some key members that help contribute to the team on and off the field. From broadcasting to entertainment, player development to community involvements, each Explorer learned how instrumental each aspect is to the Phillies organization.
For more than 20 years, the Phillies have hosted Post 660 of the Explorers - a branch of the Boys Scouts of America that invites high school students to explore different career avenues.
