The use of '''standard terminology''' applies across BSA programs when there exists parallel organization structures, activities and [[Aims and Methods|methods]]. In essence, separate programs use different names to mean the same thing. When appearing in handbooks and other communications, standard terms often may be substituted for the distinctive title used by each different program. For example, issued guidelines for a ''[[Roundtable]]'' meeting can be applied to a ''Varsity Huddle'' or a ''Venturing Forum'' or a Sea Scout ''Wardroom''.

Standard terms are particularly relevant between [[Venturing]] and [[Sea Scouting]]:
{{quote-source|Standard Venturing terminology is used universally by the Boy Scouts of America for both Venturing crews and Sea Scout ships. This is necessary in publications and training manuals that encompass all of Venturing....All Venturing crews (including Sea Scout ships) have the option of using distinctive titles related to their specialized program.|Sea Scout Manual, pg. 7, #33239C © 2002, 2004 Printing''}}

In some cases of standard terminology, methods may be parallel but the aims have differences between programs -- for example the team system method used in Boy Scouting differs in aims compared to Venturing. In other cases standard terminology parallels do not apply to all four programs -- for example assistant patrol leaders have no equivalencies in Varsity Scouting and Venturing.

<!--{{quote-source|While the terminology differs, a Varsity Scout team is organized along similar lines as a Boy Scout troop. Many Varsity Scouts have been members of Scout troops and know the structure of BSA units.|Varsity Scout Guidebook, pg. 19, #34827A © 2000 Edition''}}

Current revision

The use of standard terminology applies across BSA programs when there exists parallel organization structures, activities and methods. In essence, separate programs use different names to mean the same thing. When appearing in handbooks and other communications, standard terms often may be substituted for the distinctive title used by each different program. For example, issued guidelines for a Roundtable meeting can be applied to a Venturing Forum or a Sea Scout Wardroom.

Relevance to BSA programs

Standard terms are particularly relevant between Venturing and Sea Scouting:

Standard Venturing terminology is used universally by the Boy Scouts of America for both Venturing crews and Sea Scout ships. This is necessary in publications and training manuals that encompass all of Venturing....All Venturing crews (including Sea Scout ships) have the option of using distinctive titles related to their specialized program.
— Sea Scout Manual, pg. 7, #33239C © 2002, 2004 Printing

In some cases of standard terminology, methods may be parallel but the aims have differences between programs -- for example the team system method used in Boy Scouting differs in aims compared to Venturing. In other cases standard terminology parallels do not apply to all four programs -- for example assistant patrol leader has no equivalencies in Venturing.
