Central Region Areas

The Central Region's primary responsibility is to aid and support each local council's Venturing program operations. Among the ways the Region reaches out to local councils is through Area Presidents. Each Area President is a youth Venturer that works closely with both the regional leadership and with the councils in their respective area. Additional support for the uniqueness of the Sea Scouting program is provided by a Regional Boatswain.
