This section is often referred to as Venture Scouts or Senior Scouts. It is meant for young people of 14-15 to 17 - 18 years old depending on the country. It is an
intermediary section between the second and the fourth sections, to allow a real progression of young people. In this section they need to exercise responsibilities and
to affirm their personalities. The section programme must therefore provide assuranc es to young people. The progression is characterized by development of t he
three acquisition areas.
