Time to Think

Final retreat for this year

The 5th Principle Quest retreat will be held in mid November, and next year we plan two more.

When these women return to the real world, they bring a higher level of consciousness to choices they make each and every day. Time to Think by Nancy Kline is the prereading and says it all. The answers are so often inside ourselves if only we had the time to think!

Hunter College's mentoring program has been successfully operating for several years.  Pairing Hunter alumnae/i with Hunter students, the program requires an essay to apply for acceptance into the program, and thus students are highly motivated, all of them eager to learn about a chosen industry or profession.
