Leadership Events & Programs



Catalyst is a one-day program designed for anyone who is interested in starting something extraordinary. Participating in Catalyst is a first step in the life-long process of learning, exploration, and action.

This program is designed to allow participants the time and space to connect with others and engage in learning more about their own story of leadership. They will explore questions like: Who do I want to be? What is my story? Am I being the person I want to be? What are the causes and communities I care most about and how can I contribute?

This is your opportunity to find out more about getting involved at MICA.
