Explore is a job and professional training program offered to program alumni and members of New Earth Youthbuild. In partnership with Explore.org, New Earth offers post-release employment opportunities and intensive job training to our young people as full time and part time remote operators for Explore.org’s global website. This online web portal sets up webcams in natural animal habitats throughout the world broadcasting animals such as brown bears, owls, great danes, kittens, puffins, beluga whales and panda bears to thousands of viewers in real time.
The cameras showcase the animals’ natural behavior and offer young people employment and an opportunity to be immersed in nature – learning about the world around them. Employees are trained in the mechanics of camera operations, film editing, film production, social media and multimedia development. They also receive basic job skills training to ensure they are competitive in the employment market.
