Venturing, what is it? -- MS PowerPoint
Venturing is a program of the Boy Scouts of America for "Young Adults", men and women. The two age requirements to be a youth Venturing member are:
13 years old and completed 8th grade OR 14 years of age.
20 years old or less.
The purpose of the Venturing program is to provide positive experiences to help youth mature and to prepare them to become responsible adults.
The Venturing Program was established on February 9, 1998 by merging the existing BSA Sea Scout program with the new Venturing Program. The new Venturing program was modeled after the Boy Scout's previous "Exploring Program" that was offered in the late 1940's through the early 1960's and the Boy Scout's Senior Scouting program of the 1930's.
The Venturing Oath: 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.
The Venturing Code: As a Venturer, I believe that America's strength lies in our trust in God and in the courage, strength, and traditions of our people. I will, therefore, be faithful in my religious duties and will maintain a personal sense of honor in my own life. I will treasure my American heritage and will do all I can to preserve and enrich it. I will recognize the dignity and worth of all humanity and will use fair play and goodwill in my daily life. I will acquire the Venturing attitude that seeks truth in all things and adventure on the frontiers of our changing world.
