How to Start a Program

Starting a youth program may seem like a daunting task, requiring a large amount of time and dedication by a core group of your department/organization’s leadership and members who are interested. However, starting a program does not need to be a burden. In fact, the program can be a benefit to help you find a new stream of volunteers that will be the backbone of your department for years to come. The National Junior Firefighter Program’s Junior Firefighter Program Starter Kit is a step-by-step guide to how to lauch (or re-launch) a program in your department, including links to more resources for additional information. Click here to download the Starter Kit (.pdf).
