The Pathfinder uniform helps make the Pathfinder program real and visible. It is emblematic and representative of the worldwide club’s ideals and standards. Each individual member becomes a very vital representative of the organization, and wearing the uniform will help to provide a consciousness of belonging to a club that rightly represents the Adventist youth of today. If the uniform is worn as ordinary clothing it will have failed in its purpose.
The uniform should always be neat and clean. To wear it commonly for ordinary play or work lowers its dignity. The Pathfinder Club program should be so valuable to each member that the uniform will be acquired and worn with enthusiasm.
Uniforms should be worn:
- At all Pathfinder meetings
- At any public gathering when any or all act as: Messengers, Ushers, Guard of honor, Color Guards
- On occasions as specified by Pathfinder director
- At special Pathfinder services
- While engaging in witness activity, or community service such as Ingathering, distributing food baskets, flowers, literature, etc.
Uniforms should not be worn:
- By nonmembers
- When engaged in selling or solicitation for personal profit, or for commercial or political purposes
- At any time or place when it’s wearing discounts the organization or casts reflection upon the uniform, lowers its dignity and esteem, and makes it commonplace.
