Youth Leader & Intern Basics

Review all the Youth Leader Program basics and download the Volunteer Handbook at the bottom of this page.

Prior To Service

Please watch each video. These will show you what you need to know to be a better leader. This will take you a max of one hour to complete… it’s helpful and interesting. Pace yourself. It’s better to watch this in several sittings! Returning leaders are encouraged to watch them again as a refresher.

Youth Leader & Intern Tips

  • Be kind and friendly with the students, but remember, you are a mentor, not a buddy. You must set a positive example for students… and they’ll listen to you better when you need them to do so.
  • You are considered staff. Act accordingly.
  • Be aware of your language and the tone of your conversations. Never use curse words in the presence of a student. Be your best self!

On Your First Day of Service

  • Please arrive between 7:45 – 8 AM on the first day of summer. Go to the office. Check in using your Track It Volunteer Tracking app (see directions at the bottom of this page.) Get our name badge. If you haven’t gotten your apron yet, please get one as well. 
  • Your name badge may not be accurate if your class assignment was changed. PLEASE CHECK YOUR ASSIGNMENT BELOW  VIA THE LINK.
  • If you have a younger sibling that you must escort to their class, you must stay with them until 8 AM. No one should be on campus without supervision and that includes your sisters and brothers!
  • On your badge, your class assignment and room number will be listed.
  • Go to your classroom… and put away your belongings.
  • Introduce yourself to your teacher!
  • Regularly plan to arrive between 8 – 8:15 AM.
  • Each day you’ll finish between 12:30 – 1 PM, once your classroom is cleaned and set up for the next day’s lessons.


  • Wear comfortable, but school appropriate clothes and shoes.
  • Aprons & Name Badges – These are yours to keep. Take care of them. Wear them every day of service. This is your uniform. If you prefer, you may leave your apron and badge in your classroom daily so it’s always there and you won’t forget it. If you are helping in a Sports class, you do not need to wear your apron, but do wear your badge!

Don’t forget to log your hours when you arrive and as you leave!

Class & Teacher Assignments

See your class assignment. These have been updated as of Sunday, June 9. Names are listed in alphabetical order by first name.


Just before your first day, download and print a copy of your school site’s map. Keep it in your front apron pocket! Have it on hand so you can reference it and help students get to where they need to go. The teachers’ last names are located on each classroom we will be using. That’s how you’ll know where to go!

Maps will be uploaded here prior to the first day:

Don Benito Map

Jackson Map

More on Using Track It:

Check In & Out each day using the Track It Volunteer Time Tracking App on your phone or on a computer:

  • You will need a Track It account.
    • This is where you’ll create your username and password to be able to use the application. This is best done on your computer prior to logging into the app. Sign up for a Track It Account on the bottom of this web page. Click the link below that reads: “Click here to register.”
    • NOTE: You only need to do this once. If you served previously, you can use your user and password from last year and/or reset your account.
    • Download the app to your phone and log in. This is where you will log in and out of service each day.
    • If you do not have a phone, please log in on a computer or laptop each day to track your hours.
  • These videos/articles will help you navigate the app easier:
  • Checking in and out automatically tracks your service hours! It’s best to do this as you arrive and as you leave each day. This is important; it’s how you track our service each and every day.
  • If you have any issues, first ask a fellow youth leader. Often your fellow Youth Leaders can help you. However, please contact NC Inguanzo directly at ncinguanzo@pasedfoundation.org if you are unable to log in or have any issues with the Track It app.
