This commitment form serves as a record of your agreement to participate in Girls’ Leadership Worldwide (GLW) 2016 at the Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill (ERVK) in Hyde Park, New York.
Session I: July 9-17 begins at 9:00am on Saturday, July 9th and ends at 2:00pm on Sunday, July 17th
Session II: July 23-31 begins at 9:00am on Saturday, July 23rd and ends at 2:00pm on Sunday, July 31st
The program requires that I sleep away from home for eight nights and nine days in a supervised school/college dormitory where I will live and work with young women from diverse backgrounds, participate in workshops and activities (some which involve physical exertion), make public presentations, and conduct myself responsibly while participating in the GLW 2016 program. At all times, I will serve as a proud representative of my school, community, and the Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill.
I understand that the success of the program depends on both my active participation and enthusiasm in all discussions and activities. I look forward to hearing and offering differing points of view and agree to respect the experience and expertise that the presenters and other participants bring to GLW.
I agree to adhere by all program rules, including no smoking, alcohol or drug use, or violence of any kind. I understand that I will not be permitted to leave the school/college campus or ERVK for any reason unrelated to GLW. I understand that when I leave the campus or ERVK as part of the GLW program, a Group Leader or another responsible adult must accompany me at all times. I further agree to be on time for all activities, including occasional day trips that begin at 6:00am in the morning. Additionally, I agree to all of the following: to perform all assigned clean-up duties, to adhere by dormitory curfews, to respect the privacy and property of other participants, and to respect the authority of the Group Leaders, Dorm Director, GLW Program Manager, GLW Program Assistant, and the ERVK staff.
My signature on this commitment form and that of my legal guardian(s) demonstrate our commitment to my active participation in all program activities and my commitment to adhere by the program rules and regulations. Any violation of these rules and regulations may result in my early removal from the program, with my legal guardian(s) being responsible for the cost and arrangement of my early departure.
I understand that I am expected to pay the $2,500 program fee, which will cover all of my expenses while participating in GLW (unless I have been awarded a scholarship by ERVK). I also understand that I will provide my own transportation to and from the program in Hyde Park, NY. Furthermore, I recognize that I am responsible for providing my personal spending money for souvenirs and any additional items I wish to purchase during my participation in the GLW program.
I understand that if ERVK does not receive the following information within the appropriate DEADLINES listed below, I may forfeit my space in the program:
- Friday, May 20, 2016 - Signed Commitment Form & $200 Non-Refundable Deposit
