Mid-Year is one of our top events at HPP! Students will have the chance to check in with other chapters and learn new skills for confronting challenges and obstacles they may have faced in the previous year. Our speakers will also share knowledge with attending students on mental health and awareness. We utilize this shared experience to sharpen leadership skills and grow our abilities to BE OUR OWN BEST ADVOCATES!

Note that for $15, there will be food, an AWESOME pair of socks, insightful speakers, and a high ropes course for students to enjoy. Registration and payment deadline: Wednesday, January 18th.
