LeaderShape Stories


So what is the Institute? It is an impactful program provided in partnership with LeaderShape and AFLV. Also, it is the amazing opportunity to discover what kind of leader you want to be. But, don't take it from us. Check out what past participants have to say about this unique experience.


2018 Participants

"LeaderShape was an experience of a lifetime. Not only did it allow me to connect and grow with other leaders much like myself who lead fraternal organizations; but it allowed me to grow as just a person of society. Being a leader does not stop within your own organization. You become equipped with some of the tools that you need to change the world!"

"LeaderShape truly pushed me as an individual and a leader much more than I could have even predicted. I met many people and discussed many topics that changed me as a person! This was one of the most valuable experiences I have ever had."

"The AFLV LeaderShape Institute experience provided me with the tools I needed to take back to my sorority and my campus in order to promote positive change in the fraternity/sorority life community."



Past Participants

"The Institute taught me more than what a leader is. It taught me and showed me the huge network of people I have around me, because of my choice to join the Greek community.

Even though it's been over a year since I went through the Institute, I STILL, to this day, have strong connections with many individuals I went through this program with. I'm so thankful for them and for the opportunity LeaderShape gave me!" - Jenn Orr, AFLV LeaderShape Institute Participant
"What started as an opportunity to connect with Greeks across the country quickly became much more than just that. My week at the Institute was the transformative experience I wanted, and provided me with clarity I needed. I was quickly approaching the end of my term as chapter president and longed for a future plan I could be truly passionate about. After a week surrounded by likeminded individuals, encouraging professionals, and empowering peers, I knew my Greek experience was not meant to end at graduation. I now serve as an Educational Leadership Consultant for Kappa Alpha Theta and work with sorority women across the country. The skills I learned from AFLV serve me every day in my position, as I encourage young women to be dynamic leaders, compassionate sisters and empowered professionals. Through my work with Kappa Alpha Theta and pursuit of a graduate degree in student affairs, I remain confident in the power and relevance of Fraternity and Sorority Life. The Institute was the push I needed towards the future I hoped for." - Emma Silvers, AFLV LeaderShape Institute Participant 

"AFLV was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. The institute helped me to gain the courage to go out and follow the ideas that I have to help others in our world. It created a new and even stronger passion to follow what I believe. I am happy to say I was able to achieve one of my goals from the Institute by extending the area in which my foundation gives out grants to special needs classrooms! We have spread our borders, and are now giving grants to special needs classrooms in the surrounding cities and states." - Reagan Ball, AFLV LeaderShape Institute Participant

"I choose to volunteer with the Institute because I wanted to be part of an experience that gave so much to me as a young leader. AFLV shaped me into the young fraternity and sorority life professional I am today, and I have so much to thank the organization for, so volunteering with AFLV and LeaderShape was a no brainer. As soon as the application came out to be a cluster facilitator, it was already completed! During my time at the Institute session at UCLA, I not only learned so much about myself as a facilitator and my own leadership abilities, but I also learned so much more about our current fraternity and sorority leaders. There was so much brilliance and energy in the room throughout my time there, and I know these students have the power and capability to make the world a better place for all. I still keep in touch with my group on a weekly basis, and I am so thankful that AFLV and LeaderShape brought these impressive students into my life. I’m changed for the better because of them." - Beckie Eilers, AFLV LeaderShape Institute Cluster Facilitator
