Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade and under 21 years of age. Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.
Venturing's emphasis is high adventure. You go places and do things that provide team-building opportunities, new meaningful experiences, practical leadership application, and life-long memories. You'll learn - and you'll teach. In fact, Venturers are expected to teach what they have learned to others. In so doing, they're better able to retain their knowledge, they gain confidence in their ability to speak and relate to others, and they acquire skills that can benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Venturing is for young men and young women ages 14 to 20. It includes challenging high-adventure activities, sports, and hobbies for teenagers that teach them leadership skills, provide opportunities to teach others, and give them an opportunity to learn and grow in a supporting, caring, and fun environment.
To be eligible, you must be a 9th Grader or above. Venturing is an experience - and you won't forget it!
