Event Details

ISLI is a peer-facilitated, faith-based leadership retreat designed by Fr. Thomas Chambers, C.S.C., at the University of Notre Dame. The retreat is designed to help high school students gain the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in both the leadership and membership roles of task-oriented groups. It is believed that leadership can be learned and will enhance a student’s education and life by improving his or her interpersonal relationships. It is open to high school students who wish to learn about leadership and improve their already existing decision making and problem-solving skills through the teachings of the Catholic faith. During the program, the students participate in activities that help them learn about positive communication, develop self-motivational skills, learn problem solving and decision making skills, practice leadership behavior, and examine different leadership styles. The students also celebrate Mass together and participate in Eucharistic Adoration. The ISLI retreat is a leadership formation experience and may not be for every student due to the demanding nature of the schedule and necessity to share in small group processes. If ISLI does not seem like a suitable fit, please consider one of our other retreat programs.    When: July 21st-24th, 2024 Where: Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center, Dalton PA Who: Current 9th Grade – 12th Grade Students Cost:  Participants (first-time at ISLI) – $200 Trainees (second time or third time at ISLI) – $215 Fee covers program materials, meals, room and a t-shirt.
