Deadline Looms for Explorer Post Applications
City Times Staff
Three local Explorer posts have announced openings for local teenagers.
Open to boys and girls ages 15-20, the posts are designed to give young adults a hands-on taste of various trades, and in some cases, help them find jobs in said field. Locally, three posts are offered: one at the Stevens Point Fire Dept., another a the Plover Police Dept., and an auto mechanic post offered at AutoSense in Plover.
The posts have only so much room, and openings come up as participants either age out of the program or move on to college.
The AutoSense and PPD each have room for five students; SPPD only has six openings.
No experience is necessary but regular attendance is required, and post dues cost $24 a year.
Applications are available at the following locations:
- Stevens Point Fire Department, 1701 Franklin St., Stevens Point. For more information call Firefighter Shane Westphal at (715) 344-1833.
- Plover Police Dept., 2420 Post Rd., Plover. For more information contact Officer Jennifer Graham at [email protected].
- AutoSense of Plover, 1745 Park Ave. in Plover. For more information call Clark Collins at (715) 544-1571.
All applications must be returned no later than Thursday, Nov. 30 at 6 PM.
