This one-day program is for AMC members interested in organizing and leading Boston Chapter trips and activities with the Family Outings, Forty Plus, INTRO, Local Walks, Mountains and Music, Ski and Young Members committees. Participation prepares you to co-lead non-backcountry trips and activities. (To co-lead backcountry trips or trips with other activity committees, see the longer leadership training program that involves two weeknights and a weekend, which is described here: https://regi.amcboston.org/1471). This program consists of lectures, small group exercises and role-plays, with a mix of classroom and outdoor exercises, and topics include leadership styles, trip planning, trip management and safety. The program emphasizes experiential learning and decision making skills. Open to all AMC members with preference given to active AMC trip participants. Reasonably mature well behaved children able to occupy themselves with books and games may attend with a parent (s). Children will be a welcome addition to our role play scenarios.
The program is held in Mattapan, MA Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The fee is $15.00. Program location and further details will be communicated with confirmation of registration.
