Community service is a valuable experience for any child. When the youth of a church congregation helps those in need – whether it is organizing a food drive, volunteering at a homeless shelter or going on a mission trip, it teaches our children how to apply themselves to the greater good and that they are a part of a larger community. It fosters personal growth, compassion, and an expanded faith by assisting those less fortunate around them.
And as vital as these experiences are, it is also crucial to keep the safety of our youth and the safety of the Church in mind whenever there is an outing.
When organizing a church youth group outing, communication between parents and church staff is key. To help deliver these messages in the fastest and most responsible way, we developed Mobile Permissions – a free electronic signature app already used by a large number of churches and youth groups. Our service provides an easy way to quickly deliver permission slips (including a payment portal) to a parent / guardian’s cell phone for any church youth group outings.
Parent’s love the convenience. Churches love how easy it is.
Getting a permission slip for any youth ministry community service or church-sponsored mission trip is all about ensuring a student’s safety. Many times, without express medical consent, doctors will not treat a student unless the injury is life-threatening. Moreover, a good permission slip will also release the Church (its staff and volunteers) from legal liabilities related to a health or safety issue. It furthermore provides the organizers with the latest health information and contact information for any student in the youth group.
With our digital permission slips, you can easily take any paper permission slips you may have used in the past with your youth group and easily reuse it digitally with our service. It incredibly simple and quick.

Those of us with young children are often too distracted to remember to change out of our pajama pants before bringing our kids to school. But ask us about that one class trip in kindergarten when we went to an aquarium and saw a real octopus? We perk right up, no coffee required.
How often does this happen? Your child tells you that they have a field trip coming up, so you ask them for the permission slip. They don’t have it. You ask again the next day, and it’s in their locker. You ask again, and they have it… crumpled at the bottom of their backpack, making it all but impossible to sign your name.
Grand Teton National Park is a place of natural beauty. The mountainous terrain has harsh, snow-filled winters. Its mild summers are offer visitors great views of wildflower and wildlife. Skiing, snowshoeing, biking, hiking, fishing, and rafting are all popular activities in the park. During my search for field trips in the winter of 2019-2020, I came across the programs at the national park.
