WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS TO LEAD HALFTIME 2014-2015.
Interviews will begin as early as February 17.
DEADLINE: Friday, February 21, 2014 at Midnight
What is a Halftime Lead?
Halftime leaders are responsible for giving a talk and co-leading small groups of participants throughout the weekend. Halftime is a free weekend away to share your experiences with others, take on a leadership role, meet new people, and connect with BC faculty and staff. It will be the job of the leaders to help participants understand the themes of Halftime and talk about how to implement these themes into our daily lives at BC and beyond. If you enjoyed your Halftime experience or would like the opportunity to lead a retreat, you should apply to lead Halftime!
Who is eligible?
Lead applications are open to ALL students in the class of 2015, even if you have not attended a Halftime retreat, and to those students in the class of 2016 who have already been on Halftime.
How do I apply?
Fill out the application at the link above by Friday, February 21st at noon. Once the application is complete, you will also be prompted to schedule a 20 minute interview.
