THE VENTURER SCOUT PROMISE
There are two versions of
the Venturer Scout Promise.
Individuals taking the Promise may
choose to use either of the following:

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God and
To the Queen of Australia,
To help other people, and
To live by the Scout Law

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God, and
To Australia
To help other people, and
To the live by the Scout Law

 

 

 

 

 

Venturer Scouts is for young people between 14.5 to 17.5 years of age. The program is flexible allowing members to choose activities according to their own interests. A group of Venturer Scouts who meet together on a regular basis form what is called "the Unit". Unless, specifically permitted, it is intended that there be no less than 15 Venturer Scouts in a Unit.

Adult leadership of the Unit is provided by a Venturer Scout Leader and Assistant Venturer Scout Leaders. Units comprising both boys and girls should have an Adult Leader of each sex. The Scout Association of Australia encourages mixed membership, however admission of girls to membership is a matter for decision by each Unit, subject to approval of the Group Leader.

Uniform
For many activities and meetings, Venturer Scouts wear casual clothes or their own Unit T shirt or similar. For more formal public and for ceremonial occasions, the Scout uniform is required.

Program
Venturing provides an attractive program of activities, self-government, leadership experience, companionship of their own age and helps to develop initiative and resourcefulness. By determining their own training needs it encourages young people to be self-motivating. Key elements of the program are selected from the following four development areas:

  • Community Involvement: Citizenship, Environment, First Aid, Service

  • Adventurous Activities: Expeditions, Outdoor, Initiative

  • Personal Growth: Expression, Lifestyle, Ideals, Pursuits

  • Leadership Development: Unit Management, Leadership Course, Vocations


The proportion of time devoted to each activity will depend on the preferences of the Unit Members but a well balanced program will include activities from all areas. (See Queen's Scout Award Areas)
