OLD Summer Leadership Project 2015
There are many good options of how to invest your summer and grow spiritually, but we believe there are several things that SLP offers that make it unique and a great option for students.
1. Excellent environment for growth in your relationship with God and as a leader.
2. Community and Relationships - Being around 130 other college students from your school and surrounding schools creates a healthy gospel centered community and relationships that will not only help you flourish this summer, but launching back on the campus in the fall as well.
3. Distinguishing experience - "There's nothing like the Summer Leadership Project" is the regular response from students coming off the SLP each summer. Being around the people of God, in the same life stage, all aiming to be developed and make a world impact for Christ, makes this investment so rewarding.
As a parent of a college student, there are many things that our staff know are on your mind when it comes to considering letting your child attend the Summer Leadership Project. From being away from your families to having to sacrifice good things they might be giving up such as summer classes, internships, or a another job. With these in mind, we aim to create a great option to meet your desires as a parent for your child financially, developmentally, and relationally.
Some students either need assistance paying the SLP cost off, or the need to save for expenses they will have in the fall when returning to campus. Being able to raise financial support on the front end before the project begins, is very helpful financially because students can pay for their personal expenses (food and gas) and save the rest for when returning to campus in the fall. If students are not able to show up with the total cost covered, they can use some of their paychecks to finish paying off the project and saving the rest for the fall. See "finances" section below and your child's Campus Outreach staff member can also help and give wisdom in how accomplish your child's needs.
Many students need to have an internship for classes in order to graduate and are forced to choose between the SLP and an internship. In recent years we have made adjustments to accommodate the possibility for both. We cannot guarantee an internship will be provided, and it is ultimately the responsibility of the student to connect and market themselves this spring with businesses in Daytona, but our staff are eager to help land an internship in any way that we can. Within the last few years we have had students intern in many different concentrations from law firms, businesses, and medical clinics.
In the middle of the summer, we have created a parents weekend that is programed and tailored to welcome all parents and family to the project. You are always welcome to visit your child in Daytona, but we will have special programming and time for you to connect with your child all weekend.
- Parents weekend this summer will be June 26-28, 2015
For any other questions you might have, please call our office at (706) 262-8844 and we would be happy to help.
The cost of SLP is $1,475. Your $100 confirmation deposit is applied to the total cost. This amount will include all books and materials, lodging, two meals per week, and weekly social events.
We require all students to show up with a total of $750 ($650 on top of the confirmation) in order to pay for expenses the first few weeks of project until your receive your first paycheck if you are working a job this summer. The remaining $725 can be payed in full at the beginning of the summer or throughout the project weekly. All students are required to pay in full, before leaving the SLP on July 30th even if the student arrives late or leaves early.
Many students choose to raise financial support for the SLP. This is not required, but is often times helpful in sharing both the financial cost, and it allows families, friends, businesses, and churches the opportunity to partner and invest in the students growth.
