Halftime Lead Applications
The application for Halftime Leads is open from Monday, March 19th to Wednesday, April 11th at 11:59 PM. Applications are for all Halftime retreats in the 2018-2019 academic year.
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 2019 and the class of 2020 even if you have not been on Halftime.
