The BSA makes use of '''standard terminology''' for parallel organizational structures and systems, activities and methods. Essentially, the separate programs use different names to mean the same thing. Standard terms used by the four programs for older youth (Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, Venturing, and Sea Scouting) may be used in subsitution.
 +
 +
In some cases the methods are parallel but the aims have differences such as the team system in Boy Scouting compared to Venturing. In other cases parallels do not apply to all four programs such as equivalencies assistant patrol leaders in Varsity Scouting and Venturing.

Standard terminology

The BSA makes use of standard terminology for parallel organizational structures and systems, activities and methods. Essentially, the separate programs use different names to mean the same thing. Standard terms used by the four programs for older youth (Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, Venturing, and Sea Scouting) may be used in subsitution.

In some cases the methods are parallel but the aims have differences such as the team system in Boy Scouting compared to Venturing. In other cases parallels do not apply to all four programs such as equivalencies assistant patrol leaders in Varsity Scouting and Venturing.
