Venturing in Schools
Mon, 20 Dec 1999 10:51:01 EST
Despite what Blackeagle told someone, there are a number of programs in
schools that do blend in well with Venturing and do use it within the School.
NJROTC is one example and one of the largest Ships in Sea Scouts in the
country actually covers one school district and two councils.
It is possible to do this and can even be encouraged as long as the CO is not
the school district (to protect everyone's backside -- no need getting things
deeper because the school district is supporting the "religious" organization
It can also work in colleges, provided you do not try to take existing
"Outdoor clubs" and force the issue, since some may not meet the membership
requirements or may protest the membership requirements.
If whoever asked has a specific question and idea I will gladly let them know
if it iis possible to make it work.
