Eligible candidates will begin with an intensive training with the national team. Then, they will begin rotations to the state teams, spending several weeks or a month in each state, assisting the teams and learning from each one. Their work will include reaching out to schools, churches, public agencies, setting up presentations and activities, facilitating practices, learning and teaching the AIDS powerpoints , and carrying out communications and correspondence with the HQ and the other teams. 

There will be three rotations (approximately) and then the trainers will return to D.C. for additional training for preparation to work in their home area. The fourth rotation will be with their home team, or in their home state. There they will work with their own parents and family, and with the youth in their own community, to form a WAIT team, and to energize an existing one. The key element is developing new ways for families to interact creatively to serve the larger community. 

After the Home rotation, the trainers will return to D.C. At this point, they will learn how to start a new team in a new state. They will be working together with families or organizations in the local area to prepare for the trainings, performances, lodging, food, transportation and other issues. They will become proficient in teaching all aspects of WAIT. They will go to the new state, spending a week or two to get the team going. In this way, several new states can be reached in a fairly short time. They will be responsible for keeping up the communications with the states they pioneer. 

After becoming proficient in starting new teams, the WAIT trainers will be able to move into international training work. They will be trained in D.C again. They will be choosing the nations they wish to reach, and will be corresponding with local families or organizations to set up the training activities. They will research costs, such as plane fare, food, transportation, and equipment rental, etc. They will learn how to apply for grants to cover their costs, and/or to cover these through in-kind services, etc. They will also learn the culture, faiths, language basics, and unique circumstances of their destination countries. They will go to the country, perform and set up the team, and will teach the local groups how to carry on a WAIT movement. Upon their return, they will continue to correspond with the team, and to report on various new developments. 

The WAIT trainers will be in daily communication with parents either by email, phone or journaling and letters (if in a location where internet is not available.) Parents and youth are urged to make various conditions of spiritual readings together, prayer, and reporting about internal and external matters. The aim is for the growth to be not only an individual matter, but a family-wide experience.
