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.

Both teachers and students understand the importance of building community in the classroom. Many teachers have developed different methods to assist in building a classroom community, however, virtual learning has called for these methods to be tweaked.
While most people think of permission slips with school, the reality is that there are a number of children groups that benefit from our digital permission slip service: Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Daycares, Boys and Girl Clubs of America, Church Youth groups, After School or Summer Camps, and so many more.
Field trips require a lot of preparation and organization from the teacher. There are logistics to figure out with buses or rideshares, paperwork and permission slips, managing student behaviors. Finding ways to involve the students in planning for the field trip makes for a much more manageable experience for the teacher and the kids.
