Joining After First Year

Thank you for your interest in the Y Guides (first, second, and third graders) or Trailblazers Program (fourth graders and above)!

If you have a rising second or third grader, you have a couple of options: 1) If you already know of an existing crew you want to join that is accepting new members, send an email to let us know and we'll send you next steps. 2) Join the Crew Connection Facebook Group discussed below.

If your child is in the 4th grade or above, learn more about our Trailblazer Program.

If you are interested in registering in the fall as a first-year Crew, please visit our Join A Crew page for more information.

Crew connection facebook group

The Y Guides staff has created a Facebook Group for dads trying to connect with potential crewmates. Whether you're a new participant looking to join a crew OR you're part of an existing crew that's hoping to add new members, visit the Facebook Group to connect with others.

Crews looking to add new members?

If your existing crew is looking to add new pairs for the upcoming year, email complete this webform and the Y Guides staff will try to get you connected to new potential crewmates. 


If you have any questions about the program, please call us at 919-719-9695 or email
