have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age.Venturing's purpose is to provide positive experiences to
help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.

Venturing is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth, adult leaders, and organizations in their
communities. Local community organizations establish a Venturing crew by matching their people and program
resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of exciting and meaningful activities
that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, develop leadership skills, and become good citizens. Venturing
crews can specialize in a variety of avocation or hobby interests.
