Making Tracks

How Do I Get Involved?

1. Become a Leader in Making Tracks (youths and adults, one day training, 5-8 hours)
Our Expert Trainers deliver one-day leader training (train-the-trainer) sessions to certify older youth and adults to lead Making Tracks programs for children and youth. Once trained as a Leader, youth can work with adults to deliver Making Tracks or adults can deliver the program on their own.  Each year that Making Tracks is delivered ensures that new youth are trained who can assist with future program delivery. Staff and volunteers from schools, recreation centres, camps, clubs, community organizations, universities and colleges around Nova Scotia are Leaders in Making Tracks. After taking part in one leader training program we'll provide you with support to help ensure that your first Making Tracks program is a success. If you're 13 years-of-age or older you can become a Leader in Making Tracks.  Why not sign up for one of our upcoming leader training sessions today?

2. Hire an Expert Trainer to deliver Making Tracks (children and youth, multi-day training, 8-15 hours)
We provide an Expert Trainer to deliver a full Making Tracks program to children and youth on your behalf.  This is run as a mult-day program for schools, recreation centres, camps, clubs and community organizations.  These sessions do not certify children or youth to lead Making Track programs.

3. Become an Expert Trainer (adults only)
Are you a savvy cyclist? A perfect pedestrian?  Do you inspire others with your scootering? Or perhaps you’re a superior skateboarder?  Do you have leadership or teaching experience?  If so, the Ecology Action Centre may want to hire you as an Expert Trainer to deliver occasional leader training and/or direct-delivery programs. For more information on becoming an expert trainer, please view our Becoming a Leader or an Expert Trainer document.
