Crew Leadership & Skills Training

April 25, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - April 29, 2018 @ 12:00 pm

The Mobile Skills Crew (MSC) initiative is a “trail-building is people building” program of the IATA. The MSC mission is to educate and empower volunteers to build, maintain and steward a premier footpath known as the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Mobile Skills Crew projects take place throughout the year around the state.

Crew leadership is part of a larger effort that entails managing a small team of multi-generational volunteers who bring a wide range of skills, experience, interest and physical stamina to the team. Crew leaders must have a strong commitment to building sustainable trail, to being part of a team effort, and gaining satisfaction from helping others work safely, and have a positive experience while doing quality work.

The 2018 Crew Leadership/Skills training will take place Wednesday April 25 5pm through Sunday noon, April 29. Base camp will be near Cross Plains, Wisconsin. We ask that new CL/S recruits attend the full training session and arrive no later than 5pm Wednesday. To bolster your application, we suggest viewing “Trail Safe” , which consists of eight video lessons, each ranging in length from 18 to 40 minutes long. Viewing the entire eight lesson series will take approximately three hours. Watch them over the course of multiple days, or “binge watch” in three hours—it’s up to you—but please watch them in numeric order from Lesson 1 through Lesson 8.

Please return your completed application to [email protected] by Sunday, March 31. Tim will call to discuss your interests and Trail program / MSC objectives upon receiving your application.
