Venturing training courses can take on many different forms; from peer-to-peer discussions, to online classes, to lessons gained while on outdoor adventures, the possibilities are endless. The resources below are just some of the many options that have been created to help you develop knowledgeable, trained youth and adults. The PowerPoint presentations compiled below were created by Venturers, for Venturers. They are supplementary trainings used to enhance the program, and are not required. They are simply here as a resource for you to build upon as you train your unit, committee, VOA, and more! If you have presentations you would like to contribute, contact NationalVenturing.VicePresident@scouting.org.
This new toolbox can help both youth and adult Venturers learn and give presentations more effectively. It is an entirely free toolbox where you can obtain information and presentation materials for upcoming crew meetings.
Inside the toolbox, users will find several PowerPoint templates that can be adapted for various types of presentations, ranging from advancement-related topics (training and awards) to helpful crew and council topics (marketing, events, Venturing officers’ association (VOA), and others). All PowerPoints have been reviewed and enhanced by the National Venturing Youth Cabinet and other youth Venturers.
All toolbox presentations may be reviewed and customized for individual presentations to fit specific needs of individuals and crews. Presentations may also be combined, depending on the desired topics. Check this new Venturing Training Toolbox out today.
