    Parent Meeting // Held in June

Each year in June, we invite parents of incoming UthMpact Leadership Class members to attend a Parent Meeting one evening at the Polk County Sherriff's Office. 

 

This meeting provides an overview of what to expect on monthly Leadership Days, at the Retreat, as well as for the Community Project and other programs/activities student leaders will participate in during the coming year. 

We ask that UthMpact Leadership members complete a waiver, sign the UthMpact agreement, and pay a $30 retreat fee before the Parent Meeting. Forms will be mailed to new members in April.

DiSC Personality Workshop // Held in July

The DiSC Personality Workshop is the first mandatory event for new UthMpact Leadership Class members each year. "DiSC" is a personality profile that shows individual strengths and helps provide a clear strategy for building more effective relationships in the workplace and in life!

 

UthMpact Leaders receive a link to take the online personality profile test after the Parent Meeting in June. Then, the DiSC Workshop takes place during one day in July at Southside Baptist Churchfrom 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, with an hour break for lunch.

Congrats to the UthMpact Leadership Class X who completed DiSC training in July 2020. The workshop helped the students gain valuable insight into themselves and how best to communicate and take a leadership role!
