@DonovanMcNeil, as the Venturers are 14 - 20, the 18 - 20 year olds are in between for Scouting. I’m using the term “youth” to try and keep it simple, but using the proper terminology, we have “youth participants” (14 - 17) and "adult participants (18 - 20).
If they’re dual-registered in a Troop (or Pack) they’re adults in that unit. For registration, they have to complete an adult app, take YPT and sign the background check forms.
But from the perspective of Scoutbook, they have youth roles (advancement, awards, membership), and show up on the “Scout side” of the roster. There’s also a bug that seems to be age related that keeps the “adult participants” from messaging other crew members, but we just found that.
For RSVP purposes, it’s easiest for the Venturers to look at the adult section to see if we have the proper number of adults (registered, over 21) going to an event. We have multiple Venturers over 18 but only one shows up in the adult section, so @jacobfetzer probably figured it out when asking if she’s in another unit as an adult. She is, so that probably throws things off a little on the programming side.
I can’t imagine all the variables the Scoutbook programming team has to consider in developing functions and handling things like this. Up until I was involved with Venturing, 18 was “adult.” Period. But now, 18 is adult, if Cubs or Scouts BSA, but not if Venturing, but a person could be both or multiple…
And yes, we try to treat them more like adults, as long as they allow us adults to act a little like kids every now and then.
Thanks, @edavignon and the rest of the SUAC. I’ve subscribed to the updates post.
