Serve in Love

Trail Life USA emphasizes service. Our mission is,”… to guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with Integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure” Twice a year—in January and June—we ask Troops to make an intentional effort to serve by picking a project that can be done as a group. The January project benefits your Charter Organization. In June, the focus is to benefit the broader community.

Serve in Love

There’s no list of “required” service project activities. Some Troops have built a Habitat house or served food at a homeless shelter. Many Troops are restoring trails for state and local parks. Do something for others that goes beyond your church and your Troop. If you need Ideas, search online or ask your local Area Team. Participating Troops can purchase a Serve In Love ribbon after they have completed their service project(s).
Thanks for all you do to further the mission of Trail Life USA. We are so grateful for your partnership In developing young men with a servant heart!



Honor Them… So March Them

Over the centuries and across many cultures, civilians have given due honor to their returning warriors. It is fitting that America should also welcome home our servicemen and women who gave so much to preserve freedom. Since such respect has been reserved for winners, Americans have come to honor the outcome, largely overlooking great service and sacrifice. Thus, those who served our country have lost the affectionate honor, often given instead to those who have given far less – but in so doing, all Americans have lost far more. Our omission has condemned us all to a futile search for the true meaning of heroism. Therefore, Commanders, you are called upon to render one final service to your country. Gather your men and women, assemble them in parade array, and march them. March them down that avenue which is reserved for meting out the tribute due America’s heroes. See more

Levels of Support

One of our fifteen Core Values is “Volunteer-Driven”. Volunteers are the lifeblood of Trail Life USA. Our support system, therefore, is delivered by trained, knowledgeable, qualified volunteers. Here are the levels of Troop Leader Support for Trail Life USA. Challenge yourself to find the resource you need before moving on to the next level! We can not support all of our members going directly to our home office staff, so we expect members to us and use this Levels of Troop Support process. Also by using this process volunteers up and down the flowchart get the benefit of being part of the support process.

Trail Ready Learner Conference – Albany

Thanks to all that were able to attend our 1st Trail Ready Learners Conference in Albany, NY, April 27-28 at at the Albany Church of Christ w/ Troop NY0408. A special thank you goes out to our hosts COR Bill Moore, and Pastor English and Northeast Area Team Members, for NY, CT, & RI Point Man Jim Evans, Twin Tiers (NY & PA) Adam Hungerford, NTO (CT) Mark Charette, DSA (DelMarVa) Ed Thompson.

I believe many left this event both inspired and better equipped for the trail ahead. This fellowship was uplifting as we came together for a common vision and mission. LET US – Put God in the driver’s seat and do our best to follow His will for our lives, working together in His service. May the spirit of UNITY continue to spread in our communities throughout the “rocky” Northeast. You guys have made significant gains this past year, and we pray for the Lord to continue to bless your support and service to be Christ Centered & Boy Focused, for His glory.

Jesus said, The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Matt 9

Trail Life Connect (TLC) Status

Hello Worthy Trailman!

For some time, Trail Life USA has worked to develop the next phase of an online data management system. Regional Team Leaders have asked for, and now receive, regular progress updates. See this link for their endorsement of the process and a presentation of our progress in the Leader Pages.

Your RTL, the top volunteer in your Region, and your Point Man will have real-time knowledge of where we are in the process, and can answer questions as they arise from you or anyone in the field. Thank you for all you are doing to further the mission of Trail Life USA.
