The following materials have been set up using the Nearpod platform, and were developped around the "Preparation and Training" component of the Adventurous Journey. They are meant to serve as a guide for training and may not necessarily cover all aspects of the AJ training. There is still room for review and update. We recommend that Award Leaders review the materials regularly and suggest edits.
