First-Year Dad Training

This training is required for all new first-year tribes (please leave the kids at home). You will receive all yearly supplies, updates about the program and pay your program fees. It is important that all first-year dads attend this yearly training, even if they have been in the program before. Each dad in the Y Guides group only needs to attend one meeting. First-year dads can attend as a group or on the date that works best.

Our Registration Checklist is a helpful, step-by-step guide that includes everything you need to be sure to bring with you to the First-Year Dad's Training.

What to bring

1) A completed Y Guides Registration Form for your child.
2) Yearly program fees payment.
3) The name of the Chief of your new tribe.

The Tribe Chief will turn in ALL of the registration forms and program fees for each child in their tribe at this meeting. If you do not yet have a Chief, assign one person from your tribe to turn in all of the registrations forms.

Once forms are turned in with payment, dads will be able to pick up their kits and vests for the upcoming year. Use the Sample Vest Sizes chart for a better idea of what size vest your child needs. 

If your tribe does not have all registration forms or payments at this meeting, one tribe member will need to drop off your registration packet once it is completed at the Y Guides office (801 Corporate Center Drive, Suite 200, Raleigh).
