Training for Advisers

If you are NOT a Religious Recognitions Adviser yet, and would like to be,
please download the program specific information below and follow the
instructions laid out within them. Please read through them FIRST, and If
you have additional questions about how to be trained to be an Adviser, or
wish one on one training, please send your questions via email to:

As the religious emblems programs are meant to develop the youth’s faith
life, it is imperative that the participants be given the necessary skills to
accomplish this goal.

The religious recognition programs for grades K-6 are to be completed by a
parent or guardian with their child. They are not to be completed in a group

For the religious recognition programs for grades 7+, they are to be
completed with an adviser and are NOT to be presented as instructional or in
a classroom setting. For those in grades 7+, they are to work in small
groups where possible.
