Leadership Weekend Experience at the Music for All Summer Symposium, presented by Yamaha 

Ball State University, Muncie, IN
June 22 - 27, 2015 | Leadership Weekend Experience: June 20-22

The Leadership Weekend Experience kicks off the Music for All Summer Symposium. Immerse yourself in a two-day, non-stop, interactive, leadership learning lab you just can’t get anywhere else 

You Do Not Need a Title to Lead!

And you certainly don’t need a title or position of leadership to attend this program either. If you want to make a difference in your program, your school, or your community, then plan ahead to join us in June!

What You Will Learn

The Leadership Experience focuses on attitude development, communication skills, personal responsibility, positive role modeling, working with peers, understanding self-reflection, personal assessment, and creating action plans to achieve individual as well as group goals.

Fran Kick and a fantastic faculty of youth leadership educators will inspire students to Kick It In® & Take The Lead. Having worked with Fran over the past two decades, our organization shares his passion and mission to develop student leadership rather than just let it “rise to the top.” Reaching out to the best-of-the-best and inspiring students to lead is one thing. Helping students simultaneously be examples and peer teachers for other students is another. Students will learn how to inspire and maintain the self-motivation in themselves and others through a series of experiences that developmentally dovetail the messages and the methods of constructive servant leadership.

Dual Leadership Tracks

This program is presented with a dual leadership curriculum – one track for anyone who has attended the Leadership Weekend Experience before and one for those who are attending for the very first time. If you have attended the Leadership Weekend Experience before, you are eligible to “come on back!" Spend more in-depth, extended learning time exclusively with Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser on Saturday, and reach beyond where you thought you could go at the ETR Challenge Course on Sunday. If you are returning for a second year, please click here to be routed to important forms and information. 

Experiential Leadership Lessons

Since “actions speak louder than words," the Leadership Weekend Experience will involve you in many unforgettable, hands-on activities for team building and problem solving that will get your body moving, your heart pumping and your mind thinking!

Come for the weekend, and stay for the week!

By attending the Leadership Weekend Experience with the Summer Symposium, you could save some travel hassles and costs. Since our Leadership Weekend starts on Saturday, it might make travel plans easier and more cost effective. Simplify your scheduling by planning a Saturday-to-Saturday week of camp for the complete Music for All Summer Symposium, June 20-27, 2015, a positively life-changing experience for high school band and orchestra students.
