Digital Retreat Content Campus Relay Retreat 2017

Welcome to our 2017 Digital Retreat content! With the use of these materials we hope that you will be able to train your committee on the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society, leadership skills, and effective communication. You are welcome to use each section and its related activities, resources, and facilitator guides all together to create a day long Committee Retreat, or present one section at a time to dive deeper into each topic with your committees. The full training can be completed within three and a half hours, with each section taking up to an hour. Below please find links to the presentation content, activity materials, and additional resources that will be used to facilitate the training.

We applaud your leadership in the fight against cancer and are so excited to see you grow and develop throughout the 2018 Relay For Life season! If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Volunteer Support and Development Chair at meghamathur5995@gmail.com.


Join us for a quick introduction, including a video message from a special guest and ground rules for conversations to come!

Leading With Mission

While most of you know the American Cancer Society through Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society does so much more. Our mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer is why we do what we do as Relayers - learn more and hear from our mission experts in this session!

Leadership Development

We’ve all been thrown into a leadership position without much knowledge on how to handle the issues that come with it. This session will offer information on soft skills and leadership tools that are necessary for successful management!

Effective Communication

Every moment of every day we’re bombarded with information - in person, online, via text message. Learn how to handle different methods of communication, work with various communication styles, and give and receive helpful feedback.
