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. Includes information on Venturing Basics, Methods of Venturing and Areas of Program Emphasis, and Program Resources and Administration.
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?

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
