Try to get a Training Boot Camp to together in your area. Students, present the idea to your Youth Pastor and/or Youth Leader to help you get started. Youth Leaders, for more information about organizing a Training Boot Camp in your area, check out Key Elements for Youth Leaders.

Get a Journal
Your Assignment Journal is the most important part of your 40-Day Challenge experience. It is imperative that everyone have a personal copy to catalog their daily experience with God, creating a lasting impression of what God has shown you. Be sure to order your Journals early enough to make sure they get distributed to all participants. Have your Youth Leader order enough for you to pass out at "See You at the Pole".

Commissioning Day
This is the day you make a commitment before God in front of others. Find out more about this day here.

Day 1 - "See You at the Pole"
Meet one-half hour before your first class begins in front of the Flag Pole in front of your school to pray with other students. Wear your 40-Day Challenge T-shirt this day and every Wednesday thereafter. Need a t-shirt? Click here to find out how to get one!
