Venturing Silver Award

This award is retired (as of 12/31/2014).

The Venturing Silver Award is available to all Venturing youth members of the Boy Scouts of America. Its purpose is to provide a pathway for personal development; encourage Venturers to learn, grow, and serve; and recognize the high level of achievement of Venturers who acquire Venturing skills.


Venturers must be proficient in emergency preparedness (including standard first aid, CPR, and Safe Swim Defense); participate in Ethics in Action; complete the new Venturing Leadership Skills Course; earn the Venturing Gold Award; and earn at least one of the five Venturing Bronze awards.


Venturers work with their Advisors to establish a plan of action for earning the Silver Award. Venturers can choose to work on the requirements alone or with other Venturers as in a crew activity. Venturers can work on requirements in the Bronze Award program, Gold Award program, and Silver Award program simultaneously. They could also work on each program separately. It's up to the Venturer and Advisor as to how they earn the award. After completion of all requirements, the Silver candidate will go through a formal review with Venturers and adults from the crew.
