As a Leadership Training participant, you are required to meet ALL the financial obligations of the LT program. Failure to do so may result in early departure from the LT Program. Any unpaid balances will result in ineligibility to participate in future Great Commission Ministries-sponsored events.
Please read the following financial information carefully:
Sponsors and Fundraising
Once GCM accepts you into the LT program, you can choose to raise financial support through sponsorships to cover your LT program fees. You will receive support raising guidelines and helps as part of your acceptance email.
Those of you finding sponsors to help cover your LT program fees are responsible to meet the same payment schedule.
The program cost of Adirondack LT is $695, plus the application fee ($25, $50, or $75, depending on when you apply, see the faq’s). The program fee covers all your program costs for the summer, as well as other costs associated with the training. (Your food and housing costs are covered by your employment at the YMCA.) If you choose not to pay the full amount up front, a five-part payment schedule is available (see below). If you have any problems meeting the payment schedule, please contact on of the Adirondack LT directors. Together we can look at the possibility of setting up an alternative payment plan to cover the program costs.
LT has limited participant space! To ensure your space at LT, you must send in a Program Deposit of $200 by April 30. GCM cannot guarantee you a spot until we receive your deposit. If we have not received your program deposit by the April deadline, you will be placed on a waiting list.
|Due Date||Payment Type||Amount|
|April 30||Program Deposit||$200|
|June 19||Upon Arrival||$200|
|July 1||Payment 3||$100|
|July 15||Payment 4||$100|
|Aug 1||Final Program Fee||$95|
GCM accepts personal checks, money orders, and credit cards for the Program Deposit. For the remaining program fees, cash payments are also accepted. You can pay the full $695 by April 30, if this is an easier option for you.
If you foresee that you will have any problems meeting the payment schedule, please contact on of the Adirondack LT directors immediately. Together we can look at the possibility of setting up an alternative payment plan to cover the program costs.
If you miss a payment deadline and you have not made arrangements with GCM, you will be assessed a late fee of $25 per payment. Failure to make a payment deadline may result in GCM suspending your participation in the program.
Non-sufficient Funds Fees
Please make sure that you have sufficient funds to cover each payment.
If you use a personal check for payments and there are insufficient funds in your checking account, GCM will charge you a $25 NSF fee. If you pay by credit card and it is declined, we will require you to make immediate payment by check, money order, or cash.
Before May 1: You will forfeit the registration fee and your deposit. In addition there is a $200 cancellation fee.
After May 1: Any possible refund will be decided on a case by case basis – and only for extreme cases (ie. Death of parent or sibling, severe illness, etc.).
- There are no refunds for participants who are dismissed or choose to leave the program.
- Participants agree to complete all payment obligations.
- Any exceptions must be granted in writing by the Program Director.
