TLT Staff Handouts
TLT Staff Handouts are those articles which are most requested from our office for use in TLT clubs. Our goal is to connect you with the resources you need, when you need it, so that you can get back to doing TLT Ministry even better than you were before.
If you have additional resource requests that are not found here or elsewhere on the site please contact us.

For Local Club Organizations
This workshop is intended to help the TLT think about underlying leadership concepts that are a part of their club. They have attended Club meetings and Pathfinder events for many years but may not be aware that they know the policies and procedures of their own club.
The purpose of this workshop is to develop discussion between the TLTs about the way their club operates. The goal is for them to discover that they know much of the leadership issues their staff work with on a weekly basis. They will discover that other clubs have similar ways of accomplishing the same goals. TLTs should attend this workshop every time they attend a conference-sponsored TLT training so they learn their club policies by memory.
It is simple and inexpensive to put together a portfolio 3-ring binder. Without a portfolio binder it will be difficult to keep all your leadership training documents and workshop handouts you receive in an organized way. Also, your portfolio binder will be a great help when preparing your Leadership Prospectus when applying for college scholarships.

Department Evaluation preparation is a simple process. It is to be done at the club around a table with the TLT’s Operational Department Tasks page that has the “Notes” lines filled in from a previous Lab Planning session.
Many teens drop out of Pathfinders after being involved for two or three years. Here is a guide for activities and program planning that, if followed, can enable long-term participation in Pathfindering.
Guidelines for planning how each required task can be learned and accomplished in the club.
The Club Director/Associate Director for TLT and the TLT Mentor work closely with the TLT in helping them meet the requirements for advancement through the TLT program. The TLT Program Level Checklists are the TLT’s records of accomplishments along with their completed and signed-off Operational Departmental Tasks. The TLT Program Level Checklists should be kept by the TLT and with the club records for each TLT.
For Conferences and Area Organizations
Some Academies and High Schools offer elective credit for extended involvement with the TLT ministry. This form helps the TLT communicate academic credit requests in the proper way.
The purposes of the Area TLT Council would include:
- Assist club/TLT directors and TLT mentors in their mentoring roles
- Plan area events and activities that involve TLTs in fulfilling their TLT requirements
- Provide opportunities at the area-level that can help TLTs fulfill their Special Operation Projects
- Promote TLT ministry throughout the area/district
The purpose of the Conference TLT Council is to plan and direct the TLT Ministry of the conference.
This two page check sheet will help the TLT team confirm that all elements of planning are in place.
This hour-by-hour sample schedule will help the TLT Convention planning team plan key program elements successfully.
This one page document lists many of the possible participants necessary to make a TLT Convention weekend a success.
The purpose of the Department Evaluation is to catalyze the learning process by debriefing the learning accomplishments made over the past few months. This goes beyond doing the activities for the sake of the activity. It brings the learning full-circle. This evaluation tool is best used at a TLT Convention.
This one page table assists the TLT leader in recording TLTs and mentors interactions. This form is used by conference leaders as well as local leadership.
The TLT's first priority is to their local club. However, for short periods of time the TLT may be involved at the Conference level in facilitating events such as Pathfinder Fair, Pathfinder Camporee, and Pathfinder Bible Experience (PBE). This document outlines ideas and guidelines for how TLTs may be involved in staffing at Conference level Pathfinder events.
