RENDEZVOUS 2021 TEASER 10JAN2021

The purpose of the Golden Gate Area Council’s Venturing Officers’ Association (VOA) is to provide support and guidance to maintain and grow the council’s Venturing program. VOAs collaborate with other committees in providing training for Venturers and Advisors, programming for crews, and monthly or quarterly forums to bring together youth and Advisors.

 

A VOA consists of a team of officers (youth president and vice presidents for administration, program, communication, secretary, treasurer, etc.), supported by an Advisor, and keeps the VOA organized. This forum provides a voice for youth to help strengthen the Venturing program. A VOA holds several meetings during the year and hosts a few events that help to bring the crews, districts, councils, or areas together. Each event may have a different goal: training, adventure, recognition, fun—or all of the above.

 

Council Venturing Officers’ Associations provide opportunities for adventure, leadership, personal growth, and service (ALPS). 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 VOA’s Council.

We want YOUR feedback

In the past years of our VOA, we have planned, promoted, and hosted numerous in-person events/activities to bring Crews in our council together.  However, that nowadays is more “easier said than done” and not really feasible at the moment.  As we plan some limited in-person events and more virtual events, we would like to hear your ideas and suggestions!

Please contact the VOA Advisor(s) down below to send us your feedback or click the Yellow Button near the top of the page.  Thank you!
