Venture Crew 190 - Ethics in Action

Ethics in Action Requirements


     Another cornerstone of the Venturing Silver Award is learning through experience. While you are working on your Venturing Silver Award requirements, you will have many experiences. You will enjoy experiences that let you interact with your peers, learn decision-making skills, evaluate and reflect so that you can learn from your success and failures, and discuss conflicting values and form your own value system. Experience can be a powerful learning tool!


(a) Participate in at least two Ethical Controversies, No. 99-223, activities. These activity scenarios that will put you and those who do the activities with you into challenging, problem-solving situations. In a constructive way, these activities will help you develop the following skills:

1. Promoting productive conflict resolution

2. Polite disagreement

3. Listening to new ideas

4. Understanding other people's perspectives

5. Working toward a solution that the group involved will support and implement

(b) Either organize and lead, or help organize and lead, an Ethics Forum for your crew, another crew, school class, or other youth group. An Ethics Forum is simply another, more formal, way of gathering information about ethics. You will invite two or more adults to form a panel for your crew or group to ask questions about ethics in their personal or professional lives. You can even invite adults related to your crew's specialty; if you are in a sports crew, you could invite a sports doctor, a coach, and a professional athlete. You can even invite guests such as family members and friends to join you. You can even use the information gathered from the Ethics Forum to develop your own Ethical Controversies activities.
