Venturing is a youth development program for young men and women who are 14 years of age OR 13 years of age and have completed the eighth grade and under 21 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. What a Venturing group does is limited only by the imagination and involvement of the adult and youth leaders and members of the group — sail the Caribbean, produce a play, climb a mountain, teach disabled people to swim, or attend the Olympics. All these adventures and many more are being done today by Venturing groups across the country. All that is needed are concerned adults who are willing to share a little bit of themselves with today’s youth — tomorrow’s leaders.
