Becoming a trained Venturing volunteer has never been so easy!
The new online learning portal for Venturing has been released in the BSA Learn Center, and starting is as simple as firing up your web browser.
As an alternative to classroom training at the local council, this portal allows volunteers to complete their leader-specific training completely online.
The training content for Venturing is comprised of 14 e-learning modules, which are broken into three easy-to-follow learning plans:
- Before the First Meeting
- First 30 Days
- Position Trained
Whether you’re taking Venturing training for the first time or just need a refresher, you can explore specific topics such as how to plan an event, selecting officers, annual program planning, and even how to interact with young adults.
Where to Begin:
To access the BSA Learn Center, login to my.scouting.org and click on the Position Specific Training graphic on right side of your screen. For assistance, please contact the Member Care Contact Center at (972)580-2489 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All modules range from 6 to 17 minutes in length, allowing Venturing volunteers to be position specific trained in approximately 2 ½ hours!
The Venturing portal is the latest in a series of Scouting U updates, which volunteers are sure to find useful. New material is being produced on a regular basis and we’ll continue to share updates as Scouting U moves forward. Stay tuned to Scouting Wire for the latest BSA Learn Center details.
