Patriots’ Path has formed its very own VOA-like structure called the VEX (Venturing Exploring Xperience)! VOA is an acronym for Venturing Officers Association. The purpose of this structure is to support Venturing on a council level. The VEX is also open to Scouts from the Sea Scout and Exploring programs. By adapting the traditional VOA structure to support Sea Scouting and Exploring as well, we hope to use the VEX to grow and support the older youth programs within our council.
There are a few key positions in this structure, but most of it is made up of representatives from each unit. The VEX is here to support our crews and help them out whenever they need. To do that, we need youth from each crew at our meetings! The representative doesn’t have to be the same person at each meeting, and while it would be preferable to have a crew officer there, they don’t need to be one. There can even be multiple representatives from each crew.
Our meetings will be the 3rd Sunday of the month, 6 PM – 7:30 PM, at the council service center! We will be planning some exciting events and would like input from the youth in council. Please pass this information on to the youth in your unit.
We hope to see representation from all the crews, posts, and ships!
