Resources

Welcome Coaches!

Thank you for being part of our Youth Challenge pilot project. We can't wait to see what your students create! On this page you will find a variety of materials and resources that are available to help you guide your teams. 

We encourage you to use whichever resources are most appropriate for your students, but please be sure to review the Coaches' Handbook in it's entirety. It contains many essential details you will need to know.

A note about assessment: Collecting data is essential to the success of the pilot program and our ability to offer a Youth Challenge in the future. Please respond to coaches' surveys emailed to you and share the following survey link with your students prior to beginning the project: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YDCstudent

Thank you in advance for taking the time to do this!
