The Academy: Campus and Community Leadership Training

August 12-20, 2013

Geneva College, through a joint effort with the Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) and Degrees of Change, presents The Academy-a new initiative designed to help students develop practical college success skills, equipping them to support one another and succeed academically as they grow into service-minded leaders.

Participants will meet together each day for college training with a priority on cultural intelligence and discovering a sense of purpose and leadership. They will establish a spirit of teamwork within an ongoing cohort, and build a network of support that will last through commencement.

In addition, upon successful completion of the weeklong Academy program, program participants will receive a stipend toward books or tuition.promise.png
