Primary Help: Welcome to Y/M and Y/W
I found the following information helpful in conducting a 12 year old Primary graduation interview. This would also be a helpful if you are in Young Women's or Young Men's in welcoming a 12 year old into the program.
From the June 2006 Friend, there is a great article called: "Welcome to the Aaronic Priesthood and Young Men". This would also help with the Priesthood Preview too: Here is the article from the PDF version of the June 2006 Friend pages 46 - 48 here:
Also when I have been involved with a Priesthood Preview in the past, I like to hold it in the church building so that the boys can go to the sacrament table and the Deacon President can go over the routes and explain how everything is done. Also the Bishop can take the boys into the clerks office and go over fast offerings and their sacred duty to collect them. Just a few thoughts for your Priesthood Preview.
From the July 2006 Friend, the article for the Young Women is called; "Welcome to Young Women". Here is the article from the PDF version of the July 2006 Friend pages 46 - 48 here:
I hope this provides some extra help in the transition from Primary to Young Women's and Young Men's.
