Template:Boy Scouting Rank Advancement for Venturers
Scouts who earn the First Class rank while a registered member of a Boy Scout troop or Varsity team may elect to continue working toward Eagle as a registered member of the Boy Scout troop or a registered member of a Venturing crew, or while retaining dual membership in a Venturing Crew, or while retaining dual membership registration in both a troop/team and a Venturing crew. Whichever registration status a boy elects, both Scoutmaster and crew Advisor need to confirm which adult leader the boy plans to have oversee his advancement process toward the rank of Eagle. That selected leader needs too be fully cognizant of the 12 steps from Life to Eagle (see description in this manual), the timeline requirements of certain merit badgess required for Eagle (see the current edition of Boy Scout Requirements), and the requirements of the Eagle Scout leadership service project (see reference in this manual).
Position of responsibility requirements may be met by the Venturer serving as president vice president secretary, or treasurer in his crew, or as boatswain, boatswain's mate, yeoman, purser, or storekeeper in his ship.
The Scoutmaster conference will be conducted by the Advisor or Skipper.
As the Venturer meets the requirements for the Star and Life ranks, a board of review is conducted by the crew or ship committee. The Eagle board of review follows the procedure established by the local council.
