Ada's Teen Guild
Terms and Conditions
Ada’s Teen Guild is a civic organization and program of the Youth Connect Club. Preteens and Teens who join the guild take on odd jobs as missions. Each mission is one that supports the city of Ada and it's citizens. Whenever a member completes a mission, they have the opportunity to earn gold(YCC's currency). Once a week they can exchange the gold for services, goods or cash. Through contribution and mission completion, they earn points for ranking up in the guild. Certain missions have rank requirements, meaning they become available upon ranking up in the guild. Upon signing up to join the guild the member and their guardian, must fill out a contract. The contract contains both the expectations of the guild and of the member. If the members behavior inside or outside of the guild violates a part of the contract, then it could lead to the termination of the member's guild membership. Membership into the guild is available to youth between the ages of 12 and 17. The program is ongoing and has officially started as of May 1st, 2021.
