What is a Halftime Lead?
Halftime leaders are responsible for giving a talk and facilitating small groups of participants. Halftime is a free weekend away to share your experiences with others, 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 daily life 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 2016 (rising seniors), even if you have not attended a Halftime retreat, and to those students in the class of 2017 (rising juniors) who have already been on Halftime.
