The Austin-Travis County EMS Explorer Post 247 is an organization for youth aged 14-21 years in the central Texas area to learn about careers in Emergency Medical Services through classes and ambulance ride-alongs.
Explorer Post 247 was established in October 2010 as a joint effort between Austin-TravisCountyEMS and the Learning for Life. The Explorer Post program through Learning for Life was established in 1988. Post 247 provides youth of Austin and surrounding areas the opportunity to explore a career in Emergency Medical Services. In addition to career exploration, the Explorer Post is designed to provide a link between the academic and career worlds, and provides participants with a wide variety of real-world skills. These include character development, self confidence, leadership skills, and social development. The post provides youth the opportunity to network among future peers in the working world, provides access to volunteer community service, and encourages group collaboration and teamwork.
Austin-TravisCountyEMS is proud to sponsor Explorer Post 247, and proud to make a positive impact on the lives of Austin's youth.
