Teen Venture is a 501 (C)(3) charitable organization that was incorporated in 2001 by a group of business, educators, ministers, and elected officials in an effort to break the cycle of alarming school dropout rates, alcohol and drug abuse, and the lack of youth involvement within the community.
We are chartered through the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Venturing and Post programs, for the benefit of programming, youth accident insurance for our activities and youth protection training for our volunteers for which we pay annual membership dues, per youth and per adult volunteer members in addition to a charter fee. Teen Venture receives NO financial assistance from the BSA.
Our membership includes students who are in sixth-grade through age twenty and who are enrolled in middle school, high school, or college. For our older members who choose not to attend college, we require them to be employed by a local business, so they are learning a skill and are contributing to our society is some way.
