Strategic Partnerships with Trail Life USA
Trail Life USA is charting a strong Christian nationwide adventure, character and leadership development program for our young men. This program will rely heavily on strategic partnerships to provide discounted program, travel, and merchandise options for our local troops across the country.
Strategic Partnerships are an excellent opportunity for businesses and organizations to assist our nationwide efforts while building goodwill with tens of thousands of our members across the country!
Trail Life USA has current commitments that represent tens of thousands of new members that will participate in our program upon launch on January 1st, 2014. We anticipate enrolling as many as several hundred thousand registered members within the first years. In addition, the Trail Life USA program for our sons is affiliated with the American Heritage Girls program for our daughters, which has an 18 year track record of delivering a solid Christ-centered program emphasizing servant leadership in an atmosphere of faith, service, and fun!

What is the process to register as a Strategic Partner:
If you feel that you can assist our members and troops, here is the way the process works:
- Complete and submit a “Strategic Partner Profile Form” electronically on this site.
- On that form, stipulate the way that you see your group assisting our members. If you have a specific offer or discount for our members, note that on the Profile Form.
- Our Strategic Partner Review Team will review your form and contact you to further discuss your offer or idea, and ultimately approve your listing in our Strategic Partner Portal.
- Depending on the nature of the proposed relationship, we will potentially partner with businesses or groups that share our values or alternatively do not support other organizations that have values that we can not endorse.
- Approved Strategic Partners and/or offers will then be listed on our members only, password protected, Strategic Partner Portal. Our troops across the country will deal with strategic partners with confidence, knowing that they have been vetted and approved by the National Trail Life USA organization.
We sincerely thank you for your interest in partnering with this organization for the benefit of the development of young men across the United States of America!
