Student Leadership Retreat

This was the second year Prairie held the retreat at Camp Caroline, partnering with Alberta Baptist Association. "The leadership retreat was the perfect way to start the Winter 2019 semester,” says Student Union Vice-President, Adrianna. “It was a time to rest, to be revived, to build memories, and to be inspired for a new term.”  Adrianna continues, “I loved the time to connect with fellow student leaders and some of the staff and faculty at Prairie. We have so much support here from mentors who take time for us, believe in us, teach us, listen to us, and encourage us. I am honoured to learn from them and grow in my leadership right here on campus. Through my time serving on the Student Union I have learned the importance of having a common vision as a team. I've learned the value of servant leadership, how to listen to God's will for our campus, how to combine ideas with other passionate leaders, and how I can make a difference no matter what role I am in. I believe that God is working in and through us on campus and am so excited to see what he's got up his sleeve for the rest of this semester!"

Like Adrianna, many students participate in the Student Applied Leadership Training (S.A.L.T.) program to gain key leadership and relational skills along with their college classes. They also receive a bursary to lower their student debt for when they enter the work field. The student roles are small group leaders, Student Union Commissioners, teacher assistants, program interns, chapel assistants, library clerks, Admissions assistant, and athletics assistants.

Prairie desires to provide holistic education in and out of the classroom for students so they will be equipped to make disciples, to influence culture and to meet the greatest needs of the world. To learn more about the SALT program, click here
