What is The Field Trip?

The Field Trip is a movement where young people empower other young people to find their passion, peers and path. Young people meet each week to undertake a program where they’re encouraged to consider and contribute to the local and global community. Launching in August 2015, The Field Trip now has two chapters with about 60 members and 15 paid young leaders.

Caremonkey is a terrific system for The Field Trip, allowing our young leaders to know who is attending each week and any health or dietary issues to be aware of – all on their own phones (via the app).

It has eliminated a lot of paper forms, etc. and streamlines processes for new members and having all necessary information on hand. We often get really good feedback about it from our young leaders.

We use Caremonkey to take roll calls each session and share information centrally with each Field Trip chapter (in different locations). We also use Caremonkey to accept applications for our Field Trip USA program, sending leaders to the USA for three months and sharing relevant applicant and referee information with Camp Directors in the USA via Caremonkey.

Caremonkey has certainly prevented losing people’s information, issues going awry and ensuring everything goes to plan!
