Venturing Crew 186 Power Point


Principle and Foundation:

“Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.  Our one desire and choice should be what is more conducive to the end for which we are created.” St. Ignatius




Venturing is an effective coed young-adult (14-20 years of age) program designed to improve character, citizenship, and fitness through positive experiences and activities which prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.  By combining the purpose of the Venturing program with the specific teachings of St. Ignatius and the Catholic Church as a whole, the Rochester Catholic Youth Group and Venturing Crew will work to attain objectives that exceed individual capacities, while developing our understanding of our eternal purpose to praise, reverence and serve God our Lord.



 Program Goals:

1. To build a stronger personal relationship with God and a better discernment of one’s vocation.

2. To gain practical experience in a special interest, skill, or leadership.

3. To engage in a program of activities centered on the following areas:  social, leadership, fitness, service, outdoor activities, and citizenship.

4. To experience positive leadership from adults; opportunities for youth to lead.

5. To learn and grow in a caring environment.


Venturing 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 the world.
