Venturing Division in the OA

Question: Has a Venturing division of OA ever been considered - Co-ed and open only to Venturers and advisors?
Answer: The Order of the Arrow Program is currently a Boy Scout program. The election requirements define an adult member as 21 and older. A youth member must be at least a first class scout. This means that the only youth that can be elected are those that rose the rank of first class as a youth member of the Boy Scouts.

There are no current plans to develop a Venturing division of the OA.
