Our Mission

Advisors

Adult Advisors play an integral role in the function of delegations, serving as the central communicators and organizers of delegations.  They typically include teachers, YMCA Staff, and/or other adults who organize a group of students to participate in NJ YAG and attend the annual Conference.  The Adult Advisor is ultimately responsible for the behavior of their students and compliance with all program deadlines.

Advisor Responsibilities

Pre-Conference:

  • Assist students in preparation for the program by meeting as a delegation on a regular basis to ensure that students are clear on the program expectations and are fully prepared for Conference.

    • In addition to assisting students as they prepare and complete research and pre-Conference assignments, we recommend learning and practicing parliamentary produce and discussing the core YMCA values (caring, honesty, respect and responsibility) to ensure a successful experience for all participants

  • Relay information on registration and logistics to students

 

Conference:

  • Provide primary supervision of delegates during committee sessions.

    • All adults advisors will be assigned to a committee

      • The advisors assigned to each committee will be asked to commit to a rotating coverage schedule so that an adult advisor is always present during committee sessions.

      • Advisors not assigned to a specific committee may be asked to serve on Conference awards committees.

    • Advisor responsibilities in committee include:

      • Helping sign in/sign out students during session

      • Ensuring proper supervision or students during committee sessions

  • Facilitate delegation meetings to allow delegates to reflect on the day and share pertinent information
     

  • Attend adult advisor meetings as scheduled during the Conference.
