Venturing is for young adults (male and female) ages 14 through 20 who, along with adult leaders, are registered with the Boy Scouts of America.
The program matches the interests of young adults with adult expertise and resources of the chartered organization and other adults in the community.
The program is carried out through a Venturing crew. Its purpose is to provide experiences that will affect the positive development of youth at a critical stage in their lives and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.
The crew is led by elected youth officers. Young adults join to gain insight through fun-filled programs and hands-on activities provided by the chartered organization, adult committee member volunteers, youth member parents, and other consultants from the community.
Venturing has four specific goals for Venturers:
- To gain practical experience in a special interest, a skill, or leadership
- Engage in a program of activities centered on the following areas: social, leadership, fitness, service, outdoor, and citizenship.
- To experience positive leadership from adults and youth and to have an opportunity to lead others.
- To learn and grow in a caring environment.
