Take it All In

 

We give our TI students lots of options for learning and exploration. Our path introduces a student to our programs through initial sessions with Peer Mentors. Students add on Expert Mentor sessions and Leadership Classes at their own pace.

We encourage TI students to be openminded and talk to as many Peer Mentors to experience differing points of view and philosophies. Students will learn something new and share something different with every mentor they meet and every Leadership Class they participate in.
