IMPACT Alpha Delta Pi is for emerging leaders and each chapter is required to have one emerging leader attend. Underclassmen sisters who hold a chapter office are great candidates. The program, based off our Creed, helps participants learn to influence the future of Alpha Delta Pi and their chapters, as well as, look to themselves for personal change and growth.
Offered for the first time in 2002 during the Volunteer Leadership Seminar, IMPACT Alpha Delta Pi is a values-based program built around The Creed of Alpha Delta Pi. The IMPACT Alpha Delta Pi program allows emerging collegiate leaders the opportunity to learn how to address major issues facing Alpha Delta Pi and their chapters, to develop their leadership skills and to recognize how to affect the success of their chapter as a future executive officer. IMPACT Alpha Delta Pi also prepares these chapter leaders for alumnae involvement following their college years.
IMPACT Alpha Delta Pi is an intense living-learning community experience. The learning and sharing that occurs through informal gatherings and discussions (as a result of the environment) is considered just as relevant and important as the structured curriculum of the program. Sessions feature hands-on experiential activities and ample discussion time designed to assist each IMPACT Alpha Delta Pi participant in developing her desired leadership skills, in identifying new ideas, and in formulating concrete plans for the sorority and her future. Chapters fund an emerging leader from their chapter to attend and find the bonds created between undergraduates and alumnae through this interaction results in sustained communication and commitment.
