Pathfinder Club and Honors

Similar to ‘The National Scout Council of Myanmar (appointed by the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar)’ in 2012[1], YAIA upholds the Pathfinders or Pathfinder Club of Seventh-day Adventist Church that started as the organization of the Pathfinders Club within the Adventist Church in 1907 when the Department of Youth Missionary Volunteer (Volunteer Missionary Society) was established under the leadership of Pastor M.E. Kern. In 2001 it was recorded that there were over 2 million pathfinders in the world, and 90.000 clubs in over 150 countries.

The Pathfinder Club program is built around physical action. This is because youth from 10 to 15 years of age are in a fast-growing physical stage of development. It is filled with action, adventure, challenge, group activities, and provides opportunities for the development of new attitudes and skills that produce personal growth, team or community spirit and a sense of loyalty and respect for God, His Creation, and His church.

While the Pathfinder Club exists primarily for youth, one of its basic purposes is to also bring together parents and church members through active involvement with the club and its members. Here the so-called generation gap disappears as young and old worship, work, and play together in a bond of common experience. Meaningful relationships are forged as leaders and counselors join with Pathfinders in sharing, building confidence, and working together. (Pathfinder Administrative Manual, 2004 Revision, page 3)

Students are required to take up relevant classes and honors in close coordination with the local church leaders as they directly contributes to the aims and objectives of the school especially meeting physical health, mental framework, spiritual realm and Christian citizenship in order to excel as full grown and developed student.

Music, Arts and Physical Education

Apart from regular classroom teaching of music and arts classes, there will be additional teaching and learning opportunities as designated by faculty members.

School Journal/Newsletter

As a part of learning activities, Students are requested to contribute and take part in the production of school Journal or Newsletter, this is not only to expose to and sharpen their ability and skill but also to document the school’s performance as a whole.
