DISCOVER... YOUR PRIORITIES AND GOALS
FUTURES QUEST® provides leadership training to men who have joined a fraternity in the past two years. The focus of the weekend is identifying personal strength and challenges, developing leadership and communication skills, exploring personal values and strength of conviction, and making a commitment to fraternal ideals. Past participants have left with a plan for their future.
EXPLORE... DREAMS & ASPIRATIONS
Only the top new members of fraternities from across North America apply to attend FUTURES QUEST®. No previous leadership experience is necessary, however, a participant will need to possess a strong desire to learn about himself, be committed to his fraternal values, and be an active participant throughout the Quest.
FUTURES QUEST® is an intensive living-learning experience, with programs starting early in the morning and stretching well into the evenings. Together, participants are exposed to new ideas and possibilities, and they are encouraged to apply what they learn to their future fraternal experience. We learn from each other, stretch our boundaries, discover strengths, and dream about a successful future for fraternities.
NAVIGATE... THROUGH UNCHARTED TERRITORY
FUTURES QUEST® takes place in the outdoors in Central Indiana. The wooded and beautiful retreat site offers modern facilities for our learning, recreational, and lodging needs.
Each participant is guid ed through the Quest by a mentor, an experienced fraternity leader who will share his knowledge and offer guidance in a variety of ways. The relationship developed between participant and mentor is strong and lasting. You will meet and interact with an amazing group of men. You arrive as strangers, and leave as interfraternal brothers. The bonds of friendship and the interfraternal spirit are forged quickly and remain with you.
FUTURES QUEST® is named in honor of Jon Williamson, who served as the Executive Vice President of the NIC from 1999-2007. Jon's dedication to the fraternal movement and the education of undergraduate students led to the development and growth of the FUTURES QUEST® program. Jon continues to support FUTURES QUEST® by attending as a speaker, and his passion and commitment to fraternity life will be felt for many years to come.
