Lead the Adventure!

About the CAC Venturing Officers Association

The Venturing Officer’s Association is a great way to keep Venturers involved in the District as well as the Council.  The Council’s VOA is made up of Venturers from all of the Districts that come to together to make our council’s Venturing program better.  

Applications for VOA positions, including VOA Advisor/Associate Advisors, are submitted in October and positions are elected in November for a December-December term.

Our Venturing program is only as strong as its youth and leadership. In the Cherokee Area Council, we have the ability to increase our program and make it great with your help!  If you need anything or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Council’s VOA Staff at info@cacvoa.org.

​Purpose

​The Council VOA shall organize the planning and implementation of the Venturing Program events and training at the Council level. The VOA shall also offer support for the planning and implementation of Venturing program events and training at the District and Unit levels.​​

Oath

As a Venturer, I promise to do my duty to God and help strengthen America, to help others, and to seek truth, fairness and adventure in our world.

​Venturing Code

As a Venturer, I believe that America’s strength lies in our trust in God and in the courage, strength, and the traditions of our people. I will, therefore, be faithful in my religious duties and will maintain a personal sense of honor in my own life. I will treasure my American heritage and will do all I can to preserve and enrich it. I will recognize the dignity and worth of all humanity and will use fair play and goodwill in my daily life. I will acquire the Venturing attitude that seeks truth in all things and adventure on the frontiers of our changing world.
