AYM WHAT TO BRING 2019 (packing list – also provided to your participants)

AYM FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions answered here)

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:


Participants should select Asheville, Junaluska-AYM, then select their church/organization from the pull-down menu.

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, one of our partner agencies. If your group is working with Pathways, you will be sent, in a separate email, a PDF Youth Permission Form to be shared and completed by the youth/parents. This form will be collected by AYM staff on your opening night meeting at the youth conference.

We have created an online participant list in Google Sheets that we will be using as a shared document with you – the Group Leader.  It is your responsibility to fill 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.  If you are having trouble accessing the document, please let us know ([email protected]).

Naomi Rabago, our Assistant Director for Conference Partnerships at AYM, will be your primary AYM contact going forward. If you have any questions about the program, please don’t hesitate to contact Naomi: [email protected]; 703-498-9973.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have additional questions about completing the leader packets, online forms, etc.

Thank you!
