Literature for the Venturing Advisor and Crew Training
Venturing Leader Manual
The Venturing book is a great tool for everyone from the first time leader to seasoned Venturing leader. Some of the titles covered in this book are: Leadership Methods, Group Activities, Adult Associations, Recognitions, The Ideals of Venturing, High Adventure and Sports, Teaching Others, How to start a "Crew" and specific goals for Venturing. This manual has some revisions in the Requirements and in some of the Venturing procedures. There is the "Trust Award Program" that is covered in detail in this new manual. This manual is a wonderful asset and reference book to be kept in a Venturing library.
