Sunday Morning segment on the BSA in Issues & Politics Posted 8 hours ago 5 minutes ago, carebear3895 said: Venturing is easily the most underutilized asset of the BSA. It's comical how forgotten is seems by national. In my honest opinion, I wish they would drop all this STEM/Learning for Life nonsense and refocus all those efforts on building up Venturing. I’ve had a few conversations with various leaders from council and the opinion that was shared is that Venturing is their weakest program... lowest numbers and highest attrition rate. Some leaders from council speculated that Nationals would make Venturing the program for girls (expand the age range to 10 and use the Boy Scout rank advancement). I’m not sure it is headed that way, but it seems from my council that they do not plan on investing much time or effort in the program. I’m fine with Scoutreach but I don’t see STEM or Learning for Life as core to the BSA. Venturing seems much more core to our mission and could see significant involvement if we advertised more. Based on what I have been hearing, I don’t believe that is the opinion of leadership.
