The primary session lasts six days and is held in the summer on the beautiful campus of William Peace University in downtown Raleigh. Following the summer session are two two-day mini-sessions held during the fall and spring. The summer session consists of numerous workshops, speakers, and group and individual projects.
Upon acceptance, the students complete a variety of assessments and are grouped accordingly. During the week-long session, the four groups work tirelessly through the afternoons and evenings to accomplish their group tasks and projects.
Additionally, each student keeps a leadership journal, introduces a speaker or workshop presenter, and writes at least one article for the daily newsletter.
The two mini-sessions extend leadership training through additional workshops and smaller projects, and the graduation banquet is held at the spring mini-session to celebrate the students’ completion of the program.
