Serve Trainees who are not experienced Presenters with another course will be required to complete additional preparation on Servant Leadership between SCT and Apprenticeship. Serve is an intense weekend experience that requires a skilled facilitator to maximize the experience for participants. In addition to training in the content of the course, SCT will include further training in facilitation skills beyond that of the Basic Skills course focusing on guiding group discussion and project work.


The cost to attend SERVE is $60 for students and $80 for alumni members.  ($5 discount for Society of Life Members). This cost covers food, supplies, and lodging for the weekend.
