The Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program is designed to train and mentor youth in service and leadership skills. 
The TLT vision encompasses a core of youth fulfilling meaningful and responsible Pathfinder leadership positions in the Pathfinder Club and Conference/Union Pathfinder ministry, supporting the mission of the SDA Church as they learn to give of themselves and to receive of others. 
TLT youth will experience acceptance, achievement, and responsibility in developing self-efficacy, self-respect, and identity through adult-teen mentoring in a “shared service experience” in developing a redemptive relationship with God. 

 

The TLT program is designed to challenge and empower the teen Pathfinder with new and increased responsibilities, while allowing them the security of doing so in a place they know and love. The TLT experience will assist the Pathfinder teen to form adult-Pathfinder relationships as an expression of their developing identity as teenagers.

We have provided a variety of published resources to assist you in growing this exciting ministry for the high school students who need more challenges than the Pathfinder program can otherwise offer them.

TLT Application

We are trying to get our TLT program organized.  In order to do this, we need to have all TLTs registered, especially for Oshkosh.  We are trying to go paperless, so we are asking you to have your TLTs go to this LINK  and complete the application form only.  The TLT has to fill out the application, not the director.  Please make sure to ask them to use the same email account throughout the process and years in TLT program.  They will need to fill out the application every year, but recommendation letters are only required for the first-year participants. It's good to have them saved for later years but they have not been converted to electronic yet. For now, we ask that you keep the paper application and letters of recommendation with you.  Thank you for your help, let us know if you have any questions.  Blessings!
