On the practicalities of Venturing advancement

So, here I am, going over the new Venturing advancement system to plan out program for our happy Crew. Why am I doing that? Because if you want youth to advance, you have to plan your program around doing the things they need to do to earn the awards. It's a simple concept that Scouters at all levels of Scouting can't seem to wrap their heads around. You don't design a cool program, and then stop the fun to earn advancement; you design a program that allows for advancement by participating in the program.Collapse )
