Officer Position details
The Venturing Officers' Association
The Pathway to Adventure Council Venturing Officers' Association (VOA) is a group of Youth and their Adult Advisors who work to provide support and guidance to maintain and grow the Venturing program throughout the council. The VOA collaborates with other committees in providing training for Venturers and Advisors, programming for crews, and a monthly forum to bring together youth and Advisors.
How Does The VOA Operate?
The PTAC VOA operates in many of the same ways as a crew operates. A crew plans activities that are fun and of interest to the members of the crew. A crew plans activities that build a well-balanced program of adventure, leadership, and service. The VOA does the same thing, but it offers a program and leadership opportunities that extend beyond an individual crew. And the VOA, like your crew, makes sure that everyone has fun as a key part of the program.
What Does The VOA Do?
Venturing Officers' Associations provide opportunities for adventure, leadership, personal growth, and service (A-L-P-S). By doing so, they serve to model best practices in programming for local crews and to provide a program resource for Venturers and Advisors throughout the Council. The VOA provide opportunities for personal growth and leadership for the youth officers, just as the leaders and members of the VOA provide programming of interest to their constituents. A strong VOA usually means strong crews. Program and training events offered by the VOA give Venturers the chance to meet other Venturers to build friendships and networks, to learn from their experiences, and to have fun! The purpose of the VOA is not to hold meetings, but to provide fun and informative program opportunities for Venturers. In many ways, the VOA serves as a forum for planning and carrying out a great program. The Officers and Advisors of the VOA know they have done their job well when they see their efforts served to strengthen the Venturing program throughout the Council.
