Venturing Program

Adventure is Calling!

Venturing provides young men and women ages 14 to 20 years old with positive experiences to help them mature and develop into responsible and caring adults. Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders and mentors, and community organizations. The result is a program of exciting meaningful activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become active citizens. Venturing crews can focus on a variety of career or hobby-related activities.

Please Note: New Venturing participants 18 years of age, but not yet 21 years of age, must complete an adult application and criminal background check disclosure/authorization form.
