Co-hosted by ARHE and S.A.F.E. Project (Stop the Addiction Fatality Epidemic), the Collegiate Recovery Leadership Academy is a fellowship program for any college student who is passionate about the intersection of collegiate recovery, leadership, and service. This opportunity is open to students who are in recovery as well as recovery allies.
Once accepted, students will participate in the Academy through the end of the academic year. Upon acceptance, students will design and execute an impact project to improve collegiate recovery supports, policies, or perception on a local, regional or national level. The time commitment for the project will vary, but students can plan to spend roughly 2-4 hours per week on their project.
Apart from the project, accepted students will receive a scholarship to attend one Academy Leadership Summit in the fall, winter, or spring (depending on their location and other deciding factors). The summits will be open to the public and will feature speakers, workshops, and additional content focused on the intersection of collegiate recovery, leadership, and service. More information can be found on their respective tabs above. Accepted students will also receive a scholarship to attend the 10th National Collegiate Recovery Conference in Boston from June 29-July 2, 2019. At the conference, they will present the results of their projects to the conference attendees. Travel expenses for both events will be covered for those accepted into the Academy.
Students will be assigned a mentor that will serve as a project advisor and resource. The extent of the mentor/mentee relationship will ultimately be up to the student and the assigned mentor. The intention is to provide the student with someone in the recovery field who can help guide, encourage, and inspire the student throughout the duration of academy enrollment.
