Episode 19 - The Queen's Venturer Award
Ken and Colin discuss the Queen's Venturer Award (good historical information, but out-of-date requirements), the Top Section Award for Venturer Scouts. Under the new Canadian Path program that Scouts Canada has launched, the requirements for the award have changed significantly, especially since one of the principal requirements is the completion of a meaningful service project at the local, national, or international level.
Venturer Scouts are youth aged 14-17, and it is generally understood that one has up to a year after the end of one's time in Venturers to complete the requirements of the Queen's Venturer Award. As such, achieving the award can be thought of as the equivalent of achieving Eagle Scout rank in Boy Scouts of America.
