AYM Leader Packet Fall 2019/Spring 2020

We are so excited to be hosting your group!  As the Group Leader, you will want to be as informed as possible about what to expect, what to do and when to do it, so we are providing you with ALOT of information here – all in one place so you can access it at any time! We ask all groups to complete this registration process no later than one month before your Mission Experience. PLEASE don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions about this registration process; contact AYM’s Director of Administrator: Cristi Wunsch [email protected]   (828-231-4635 x701)

AYM Community Partners (info about agencies you may be visiting during your week)

Each of your participants  – Adult Advisors AND Youth – must electronically complete and sign an AYM medical release/covenant in order to participate.  You will want to send an email to your participants/parents using this link:


PLEASE visit the Participant page (using the link above) and review all the information yourself so that you know what has been provided and is REQUIRED for your group. 

Some groups must also complete a Youth Permission form for the Haywood Pathways Center or a youth permission form for ABCCM (online registration for adults). These are two of our partner agencies and they do require this additional step to participate. If your group is working with Pathways or ABCCM, you will be sent, in a separate email, a PDF Youth Permission Form to be shared and completed by the youth/parents.

We have created an online participant list in Google Sheets that we will be using as a shared document with you – the Group Leader.  You are responsible for filling in the names of each of your participants (adult and youth).  Once your participants have completed their forms online, we will update your list so you can track who has or has not completed the necessary paperwork. Instructions for accessing your list were emailed to you.  If you are having trouble accessing the document, please let us know ([email protected]).

Michael Poulos is our Mission Immersion Director in Asheville and will be your primary contact going forward. Michael will be reaching out to you soon to set up a time to talk through your week.
