Program 1

Horizons Leadership Program

Horizons is a leadership development experience specifically created for qualified undergraduate Sigma Chis with at least two years of academic eligibility left in college and who have expressed a desire to improve their understanding of leadership as it relates to personal development, group dynamics, and intentional efforts to make positive change in the world.
 

The Horizons Program is held amidst an ideal setting for outdoor adventure, interactive learning, and inspired reflection. Participants begin their experiences through a series of reflective and thought-provoking questions in the application process, continue the learning through pre-session readings, immerse themselves in an on-site, whole-brain learning experience that engages their minds and bodies, and continues through post-session mentoring by alumni and follow up electronic leadership lessons and guidance.
