The go-to book for every Venturer.
Venturing is a youth development program of the Boy Scouts of America for young men and women who are age 14 through age 20 (or age 13 and have completed the eighth grade). Venturing’s purpose is to provide positive experiences to help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Learn More
A comprehensive source for the requirements of the Venturing awards programs, this is the go-to book for every Venturing Scout… now with more information than ever before! New edition combines the information previously found in the Venturing Quest Handbook (item 33151), Venturing Trust Handbook (item 33154), and Venturing Ranger Handbook (item 33494).
Information is also provided on many of the other awards and recognitions to alert Venturers to these opportunities, but because these awards are often bestowed by other agencies, the Venturer is encouraged to find the most current requirements from those organizations.
All Venturers should be coached and mentored to begin the awards path. Venturing is a game with a purpose. It should be fun, social, and engaging, but its purpose is to guide Venturers toward their vision of themselves as leaders, adventurers, and faithful stewards of their own resources as well as those we share.

A great tool for any Venturing leader, from novice to seasoned advisor. The handbook guides Venturing leaders, committee members, and CORs toward a successful crew.

It also answers questions such as:
● What are the responsibilities of adult advisors and youth leaders?
● How will being an Advisor benefit me or others?
● How do I support youth as they plan a fun program that fulfills their goals and interests?
● Where can I get practical help for things that we need to do in our crew?
Three-hole-punched for convenience. Measures approximately 8½" x 11".
Nationally, Religious and Community Life crews form the largest population in Venturing. Following in the tradition of the Quartermaster, Ranger, and Quest awards, a similar, challenging award program has therefore been created for Venturing's religious life emphasis. The TRUST Award is a unique opportunity for the youth of Venturing. This handbook details the background and requirements for Venturing's TRUST Award for religious and community life. Learn More
