Venturing Officers Association

Since Venturing is a youth-led program, it is essential that the Venturing leadership structure is youth-inspired and youth-led. Providing leadership, training, and program to local-council Crews, the Venturing Officers Association (VOA) consists of youth officers supported by adult advisors who provide leadership to their council's Venturing program. 

Venturing Officers' Association provides opportunities for Adventure, Leadership, Personal Growth, and Service.
