We have over 92 Wards in Orange Council. We only have less than 12 that are operating a Varsity and/or Venturing Program. Unfortunately, the boys and Wards could be blessed even more but are missing out opportunities to help them prepare to be the leaders they can become. We hope to change this. The boys and their future families, need it.

Currently we are getting ready for a Council-wide Fall Launch.  We are working with a few Units to help establish a model from start-up to high functional unit. We are looking for boys to participate in Varsity Vision Training in March as participants (Moreno Valley), then be able to become Staff for the same Training in October/November 2015 (in Orange County).
