To all Venture Crews in the Lincoln Heritage Council:

 The Council Venturing Committee is now accepting applications for the youth officer positions. We encourage all Venturers, who qualify, to please apply using the application listed in the link above. As we move towards reforming the Council VOA, we hope to work with qualified youth from across the LHC in order to plan activities, support and grow venturing, as well as provide an opportunity for Venturing youth to grow in the areas of Adventure, Leadership, Personal Growth, and Service. For more information please contact James Metcalf, Council Venturing Chairman, at, or Donnie Helstern, Council VOA Staff Advisor, at



Venturing Resources can be found at the National BSA website.
