What is Venturing?
Venturing is for young men and young women ages 14 to 20. The program includes challenging high-adventure activities, sports, and hobbies that teach leadership skills, provide opportunities to teach other, and give teenagers an opportunity to learn and grow in a supporting, caring, and fun environment.
Why should my child be involved?
Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible adults. This program provides exciting and meaningful activities that help youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens.
What will my child do?
Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community.
Young adults involved in Venturing will…
- Learn to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling the values in the Venturing Oath and Code.
- Experience a program that is fun and full of challenge and adventure.
- Acquire skills in the areas of high adventure, sports, arts and hobbies, religious life, or Sea Scouting.
- Experience positive leadership from adult and youth leaders and be given opportunities to take on leadership roles.
As a Venturer, I promise
To do my duty to God
And help strengthen America,
To help others, and to seek
truth, fairness, and adventure
In our world.
