Team Building for Fraternity Men: Experiential Learning Retreat
Presenting Partner: Growth Guiders
Program Description: This two-session intensive program is designed to increase individuals’ knowledge and understanding of leadership and team development in the fraternity environment through a combination of information sessions and active participation in cooperative, challenge activities. Activities are included in the schedule for both sessions, but particularly emphasized on the second day when the group meets outdoors for group problem-solving activities and hiking (one to two flat miles). Challenge activities are chosen to enhance critical thinking skills, creativity, problem-solving ability, and ability to work effectively as a team. Activities included also present opportunities for taking leadership roles, recognizing leadership styles, identifying what works and what doesn’t work in given situations, and applying learning to real life situations.
