First Year Tribe Tips

As you prepare for an amazing year with Y Guides, here are a few insider tips to help get your tribe started. Before the first meeting with your guides and princesses, make sure to schedule a Dads only meeting. At this meeting we recommend planning out the whole year with the dads in your tribe, use our Planning Your Year 2017-18 Guide to help you get organized.

Schedule time at your tribe's first meeting to come up a with a tribe name. Before committing to a tribe name, take a look at 2017 Existing Tribe Names Packet. Once your tribe has decided on a name, email us at YGuides@YMCATriangle.org with your new name and the temporary tribe name you received at the First Year Dad training.
