The Charge Application

What is The Charge?

The Charge is a five-day experience currently taking place in Chicago. Throughout the week we will look at what goals you want to accomplish professionally, personally and analyze what roles you want to have in your community. Each day at The Charge men are given tasks to complete in the city of Chicago. Similar to the NBC show, The Apprentice, participants are given a budget, objectives they need to meet and a time frame to complete each task. The week concludes by completing a five-year personal, strategic plan. You will also have time to sit down one-on-one with an alumnus from Delta Tau Delta who is a leader in his own industry. They will provide feedback on your plan and help you examine how the Fraternity can help you reach your goals.

Who Should Attend: 

Men who are thinking about what the next step after graduation will entail. Individuals at The Charge should be highly motivated and willing to think outside the box. You will be challenged to think strategically and creatively about your future. Past participants of The Charge have used their experience in job interviews, in future classes and in their community.

Why should I attend The Charge?

Delts are committed to lives of excellence. Life does not end at graduation. The Charge begins to examine what you want to accomplish after your collegiate experience. It looks to help participants develop new strategies to achieve their goals in all phases of their life: professionally, in personal relationships and in the community. Throughout the five days participants will also look at how the Fraternity can continue to impact their life outside of graduation.
