Apply to be a VOA Officer
As a VOA Officer, you will have privilege and responsibility of serving the Venturing community. You will work with a team of youth officers and adult advisors to suggest programmatic changes, lead events, and host trainings for the Venturing and Scouting community. As an officer, you have the opportunity to give back to the program and leave a mark on future generations of Venturers.
In order to apply for a position, fill out the Venturing President and Vice President Nomination Form and submit it to Venturing.NationalOfficers@scouting.org. All NVOA members (National Venturing President, National Venturing VP, Region Venturing Presidents) must attend a mandatory orientation (typically over the last weekend in May or first weekend in June).
Applications for national, regional, and area level positions must be submitted by email to Venturing.NationalOfficers@scouting.org by 11:59pm CT on the dates listed below.
Councils have the flexibility to set their own submission deadlines and design their own officer applications. This Sample Application may be used if desired.
Applying to be a VOA officer is an exciting experience! It can also be intimidating if you are unsure of what to do. Below you will find some resources that may be helpful as you work through the process.
While we encourage you to get creative and use your application in a way that best highlights yourself and your unique experiences and abilities, below you can also find some samples of past application. Note that these are meant to be used as inspiration, so do not feel obligated to make yours similar to any of these! Your application should be appropriate for the level of position for which you are applying. Council applications most likely will look very different than national applications, and that is okay!
