AHG Troop GA0594 is hosting an AHG Volunteer Training Day on August 12th from 9am to 4pm at Calvary Chapel Gwinnett in the Fellowship Hall.
The training is split into two segments – AHG Basic Training course and AHG Unit Leader Training course. For the sake of time, the Unit Leader Training will cover both the Tenderheart/Explorer and Pioneer/ Patriot break out training courses.
Who is this training for?
Any and every adult AHG volunteer or parent who wants to learn more about the program.
Training is essential for all adult Volunteers who choose to serve in AHG as part of a Troop Board, or Troop Ministry Team, in order to provide a consistent and quality program for the girls. Leaders who know the “whys” and the “hows” of their positions will be more effective and, as a result, will be able to realize the mission of “building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.” – AHG, Inc.
All adult volunteers are required to complete the following training courses:
- KEYS to Child Safety (This is completed online as part of the registration process for becoming an Adult Volunteer)
- AHG Basic Training
- Health & Safety Training
- The Unit Leader or Troop Board Breakout
- First Aid & CPR/AED Training (*one leader per unit is required to have this training, typically done by the Red Cross or AHA)
In addition to level specific training, such as the Outdoor Training. Other training courses are also available, such as Special Needs, Stars & Stripes, etc.
- 9:00 AM – Check-In
- 9:30 AM – AHG Basic Training begins
- 12:30 PM – Break for Lunch
- 1:45 PM – Unit Leader Training begins
- 4:00 PM – The End
There will be periodic stretch breaks and group activites throughout both training segments. We are breaking for lunch; the local area has a number of restaurants, including a Chick-fil-a. You are welcome to bring your lunch with you. I anticipate that we will end at 4:00PM but we have the room until 5/6 PM.
Who is teaching?
Elizabeth Wright, Vice-Coordinator of Troop GA0594, will be facilitating / teaching both sections, unless someone else steps up to help with a segment. This is the first time that I will be teaching this class so… have grace and pray for me. 🙂
What should you bring?
Please bring your Unit Leader Handbook and/or Coordinator Handbook if you have one. A Girl Handbook would probably be a good idea to bring as well. Bring a pen/pencil & paper. Bring lunch / snacks if you like; we will have access to a kitchen to some degree.
Can you bring kids?
We do not currently have a plan for providing child care during the training. However, if you need to bring your children /or/ if your young adult would like to volunteer to watch children during the event, please let us know in the comments/concerns when you register. There will be other class rooms and a playground outside that can be used; we just need some Patriot / Pioneer / adults to volunteer to manage kids.
Random House Keeping
There will be water, coffee, and (hot and/or cold) tea available. We’re working on arranging some snacks for the morning and during the day. If you can only come to part of the day, please don’t worry about it. The goal is to equip you as much as possible. All of the training is available through AHGsource which is found by logging into AHGconnect (if you are a registered member).
How to sign up?
Fill out the form below. We have room for 36+ people so, the more the merrier. Don’t forget to let your troop leadership and parents know about this opportunity.
