Michael now has a leadership role in the group; members recently elected him sergeant, Ryan Lehneis as chief and Haillee Lehneis as secretary and treasurer.

During community events, the Explorers offer free children’s fingerprint kits, which can help police find missing kids in emergencies. Additionally, the group has helped Crestview Manor workers clean the outside grounds for residents. Recently, members helped assisted living residents paint flowerpots.

Issac Roland, 17, said he enjoys participating in such activities.

"It's something I have never done before; it’s new experiences," he said.

One such experience included deciding on his career.

"Before I joined it, I had no idea what I wanted to do," he said.
