The League of Venturers Search and Rescue were established in England in August 1961. The League of Venturers Search and Rescue were established to show that teenagers, if given the training, equipment, opportunity and trust could provide a valuable service to the adult community. They provide a sea rescue service for the Coastguard and a land rescue service for the Police. Venturers are manned by volunteers aged 12–21.

“In the event of an oxygen shortage on airplanes, mothers of young children are always reminded to put on their own oxygen mask first, to better assist the children with theirs. The same tactic is necessary on terra firma. Theres no way of sustaining our children if we dont first rescue ourselves. I dont call that selfish behavior. I call it love.”
—Joyce Maynard (20th century)
“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”
