 YOUTH LEADERS:   

Youth Leaders, whether  you are going on the Trek as a Ma, a Pa, an Aunt, an Uncle, Support Member or even if you're not going at all,   you play an important role in Trek 2007. 

Here is a list of some essential tasks which all Youth Leaders should assist with: 

 

Youth Registration - a Ward Trek Coordinator has been called from your ward to manage the trek registration process.  Ask your Coordinator how you can assist them in getting the Youth and Adults registered for the Trek.   Remind the Youth to get their registration forms submitted promptly (due by Feb 28). Help the Youth to register online.  Click here for online REGISTRATION

Prepare the Youth Physically - Prompt, encourage and remind the Youth to get out there and condition themselves for the trek.  They need to start walking at least 3 times a week.  They must be able to walk at least 4 miles a day by Trek time.   If they don't start walking now, not only will they fatigue easily, but they will get blisters.   Click here for tips on Conditioning Your Feet    Become familiar with the "Monthly Events" calendar to know exactly what physical preparation  assignments the youth should be working on during each month. 

Trek Clothing - A Ward Trek Clothing Specialist has been called from your ward to help the Youth get all of their Pioneer clothing together.  As a ward leader, you should look at your Mutual activity calendar and arrange times for possible sewing workshops, where the youth can make some of their clothes.  The girls will need to make bonnets, aprons, skirts and probably pantaloons.  The boys will have an easier time finding their clothes, since basically all they need is a hat, suspenders, long sleeve shirts, and loose fitting earth tone pants.  Click here for WHAT TO WEAR

Family History - A Ward Trek Family History Specialist has been called form your ward to help the Youth find an ancestor to take to the temple for baptisms.  As a ward leader, you should look at your Mutual activity calendar and arrange times when you can take the youth the the family history center, where they can find an ancestor who has not been baptized.  Become familiar with the "Monthly Events" calendar to know exactly what family history assignments the youth should be working on during each month.   Click Here For help Finding Your Ancestors

Be Excited, Enthusiastic, Supportive of the Trekkers!

Activate - Encourage lesser active youth to Trek with us!  Actively publicize this important event within your ward. Encourage the youth to reach out to their less active friends and neighbors.  Realize that this is one of those rare 'once in a lifetime' 'life changing' events which no one will want to miss.
