Pathfinder Pledge and Law:
By the grace of God, I will be pure, and kind, and true. I will keep the Pathfinder Law. I will be a servant of God and a friend to man.
The Law is for me to:
Keep the morning watch
Do my honest part
Care for my body
Keep a level eye
Be courteous and obedient
Walk softly in the Sanctuary
Keep a song in my heart,
Go on God's errands.
Oh, we are the Pathfinders strong,
The servants of God are we.
Faithful as we march along,
In kindness, truth, and purity.
A Message to tell to the world,
A truth that will set us free!
King Jesus the Savior's coming back
For you, and me!

Teen Leadership Training (TLT Program)
The TLT Program is a four-year program designed to include all aspects of Pathfinder club management, programming operations, and encourage teens to explore and develop their talents in leadership, planning and social skills.
The program gives the TLT member experience as a leadership under adult supervision with an assigned mentor.
The program uses six major departments of a club as training sections. These include: Administrative, Outreach, Teaching, Activities, Records and Counseling. Within each of these operations are several service areas that must be completed. Some clubs, due to size or location, will not require completion of all optional items under each section.
