WHY WE ASK YOU TO READ THE TRAINING:
Whether you are coming as part of a large youth group, a smaller group of a few friends, or by yourself, we've created a guide for you that is split into six sections, all listed here. (These are the same as you or your youth leader received in the mail.) These training documents will prepare your mind and heart for the week you are about to experience. We ask that you read carefully through each piece before coming to be fully ready. You will learn about working in cross-cultural situations, what to wear during the week and why, books we suggest to read once you return, and more...
IDEAS FOR USING THESE MATERIALS:
If you are coming as part of a group, you can present these as lessons for youth group night or special training meetings that you create. Each of the six training documents are themed for easy access. Also, we offer the "Experiential Pre-Trip Training Guide", full of ideas on group games and activities geared to prepare your team. A group retreat routine is also mapped out for you. Check out "Fundraising Tips" for large-group ideas.
If you're coming as an individual, commit to reading through one a week before you come. In the "Fundraising Tips" section, we provide ideas for how to write a support letter if you need help paying for S.A.L.T. Mission Camps.
