Futures Quest

NIC program for active members initiated within the last year

Participate in a weekend devoted to Ritual-based leadership, values-based action, personal goal setting, and commitment to chapter development.  94% of Futures Quest Graduates say that because of their experience they have a better understanding of the role of ritual within fraternity life.  Additionally, 84% of graduates state that because of Futures Quest they are called to get the most out of their fraternity experience.

What is Futures Quest?

Futures Quest is an NIC educational weekend conference that provides leadership training to men who have joined a fraternity in the last year. The focus of the weekend is identifying personal strength and limitations, 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.

Only the top new members of Greek communities 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.

Where does it take place?

Futures Quest takes place in the outdoors at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana. The wooded and beautiful retreat site offers modern facilities for our learning, sleeping, recreational, and food needs. A high ropes course is a critical part of the weekend for all participants. The challenges of the course are symbolic of the challenges of leadership for each of us.

Each participant is guided 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.

There are two futures quest dates to consider.
