The day-long retreats will be filled with interactive and hands-on activities that focus on leadership training. Participants will be part of small groups and paired with a Leadership Coach and LeadUF Alumni who serve as mentors throughout LeadUF. Bi-weekly meetings will focus on specific topics through small group discussions, engaging activities and talks from experts in the field.
