Youth & Family Hike & Backpack Leader Application

If you are interested in volunteering as a Youth & Family hike or backpack trip leader, fill out this form and we will forward it to the nearest youth committee so they can review it and help you begin the process of familiarizing you with our guidelines, policies, and standards for these activities. All prospective Youth & Family hike, backpack leaders should attend a new Youth & Family leader seminar and do a mentored trip in addition to filling out this application.

The look on a child's face when you get them outside and show them places they've never seen is one of the best rewards for volunteering. If you are interested in contributing to the mission of The Mountaineers by organizing and leading youth & family hikes and backpacking trips, please let us know by completing this simple application. Our committees vet new leaders to ensure everyone meets our activity standards, and this application provides relevant information about your goals and experience.  One of our volunteers will follow up with you on the next steps to get you certified as a youth & family hike or backpack leader!

Thank you for your interest!
