Venturing Advisor Award of Merit

One of the unique attributes of the Venturing program is the relationship between Venturers and the crew Advisor. The ability to work effectively with young adults as they themselves plan and run the program is a true test of leadership skills.

  4. Demonstrate the use of the Venturing Awards program.
  5. Develop youth leadership by effective use of crew officers.
  6. Use the crew officer orientation and program planning process.
  7. Have a proven positive relationship with the chartered organization and associated Boy Scout troop and Cub Scout pack, if any.
  8. Project a positive image of Venturing in the community.
  9. Attract and hold Venturers with crew program and operation.
  10. Lead crew in completion of the Venturing Leadership Skills Course.

Nomination Procedure

The crew president in conjunction with the crew officers nominates the Advisor. The nomination is approved by the crew committee chairman.
