Youth and Adult Venturing Training

Calling all youth and adult Venturers to come out to training on February 22, 2014.

For the youth: Come attend Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews while your Advisors attend Venture Leader Specifics training.  The purpose of the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews course is to teach crew members with leadership positions about their new roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help Venturers in leadership positions within their crew understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities.  For more information and to register, click here.

For the adults: Come attend Venturing Leader Specifics while your youth take Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews.  Venturing Leadership Specifics is a required course to be trained as an Advisor or associate Advisor.  It will provide an introduction to the responsibilities, opportunities, and resources that will ensure a successful Venturing crew leadership experience.  For more information and to register, click here.
