Acadian Ambulance

Exploring is a unique career study program created by Boy Scouts of America for young men
and women ages 14–20. It provides an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of careers and
to network with professionals already in those fields.

Acadian Ambulance has been a supporter of Scouting for many years. Many of our employees
volunteer with various Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops and packs, and we sponsor Explorer
posts throughout Louisiana, Texas, and Tennessee.

Our posts are specifically designed for teens and young adults who are interested in the medical
field. The program provides real-world experiences, helping participants develop critical skills
necessary for a successful career in emergency medicine. In addition, our Explorers can earn
their Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers certification.

Explorers have the opportunity to:

  • Ride on our ambulances, shadowing employees
  • Build a medical resume
  • Learn CPR and other lifesaving skills
  • Earn volunteer hours in a patient care environment
  • Obtain scholarships for EMT school
  • Further medical career opportunities
