Navigate: An Exploration of Life and Vocation

Interested in exploring questions such as: What does it mean to live authentically? What am I called to do as a student and after life at SNC? How can I tap into my talents and passions and do something meaningful in the world?

This might be the group for you!

Who is Eligible?

  • Students in any area of study, with varied interests and diverse spiritual grounding
  • Sophomores, juniors and seniors (approx. 8 students per group; a limited number of groups available)
  • Students available the entire academic year (students studying or teaching abroad are not eligible - with the exception of a J-term study abroad experience)
What are the Requirements?
  • Attend 10 discussion meetings (approx. 5 per semester) led by a professional SNC staff member and held on the same day/time over the course of the year
  • Complete a vocation interview with someone in the fall
  • Meet with a mentor three times in the spring OR attend an Afternoon of Reflection OR go on a Silent Retreat
  • Complete assigned readings and videos for each meeting (typically 1 hour of preparation per meeting)
  • Complete two brief written pieces – initial and concluding reflections on vocation

What do Past Participants Have to Say about Navigate?

“One of the most important things I took away from this program is that exploration is an essential component in the journey towards my vocation. In order to know what I like, what I don’t like, and what I’m absolutely passionate about, I need to try new things.”

“The Navigate Program came to me at a time when I was really going to need it, even though I hadn’t yet realized it. Throughout this year, I have grown more as an individual than I could have ever imagined. Not just spiritually and emotionally, but as a whole I have found more of myself in this past year than I think I have in the other 19 years combined.”

“Ultimately, the most important concept I’m taking away from my participation in Navigate is the practice of being authentic and the process of growing into myself.”
