Activity Leader Resources

All activities conducted under the auspices of the Florida Trail Association must be led by approved Activity Leaders.  FTA Activity Leaders undergo training followed by a local apprenticeship co-leading activities with established Activity Leaders. Chapters may hold their own Activity Leaders training based upon the Activity Leader’s Guide or may request FTA staff to conduct regional leadership trainings.

Activity Leader Forms

Forms for planning, conducting and reporting activities. *It is mandatory for Activity Leaders to submit Activity Proposals to their Chapter Activity Chair for approval before advertising and leading any activities – whether hikes, events, or trail maintenance.
