TAKE ACTION: Website Language Updates

Over the last few months, we have noticed that several chapters have outdated or incorrect language and/or logos on their websites.

Clarity and consistency of messaging among our chapter network is imperative to the integrity of our organization. 

When referencing Trips for Kids, we need to make certain our messaging is the same across all chapters. This strengthen us all as one unified family and helps build awareness for us as a solid brand.

Our language may change from time to time as we evolve and grow and will provide new language to you so that you can update your website or pages at that time.

ACTIONS STEPS: Review the following folder link to update your website pages by March 1. Please make sure you select the correct language for your type of chapter.

Please click the link below to access the website template folder.


If you have any questions on which section is the correct one to use, please contact Amy at for help.
