Rethinking the Varsity Interest Survey

It's common to see young men lose interest in Scouting as they turn 14. But that doesn't have to be the case. Properly using the Varsity program will result in engaged young men that look forward to attending quorum activities.

A key element of the Varsity approach is to use the 'Varsity Interest Survey' (VIS) to determine which activity areas your youth are interested in. My problem is that the official interest survey (available in the Varsity Guidebook, and the LDS Playbook) is badly out of date in terms of many current interests that teen commonly have.

Taking things into my own hands, I have redesigned the VIS to better reflect both youth interests and quorum goals.
