What is the difference between ASPIRE and MASTERMIND?

ASPIRE is for...

  • Emerging Leaders

  • You are a coach, coordinator, asstant director, associate director, but not the Top-Level Career Staff in your Office

  • You want to continue to climb the ladder of leadership in career services

MASTERMIND is for...

  • Top-Level Leaders

  • You are the Top-Level Career Staff in your Office (26 Spots)

  • Note: There are 8 spots for current Career Leaders who report directly to the Top-Level Leader

Logistics

TRANSPORTATION & LODGING

TRANSPORTATION ON YOUR OWN

  • We recommend renting a car and car pooling with colleagues. 

  • Round Trip Shuttle from DIA to Estes Park (Plan ahead, book ahead). If arriving to DIA after 10:00am on Day 1, then you should carpool with colleagues or rent a car. 10:00am is the last best shuttle to Estes. 

 

LODGING FAQs

  • Can I get to Estes the night prior or stay an extra night? Yes! The cost is on you, but you can call the Lodge to arrange this after you register and we get you on the roster - we will let you know.    

  • Can I bring a partner or kids to stay with me. Yes. While they won't see you much during ASPIRE and will have to buy their own meal tickets,  the YMCA of the Rockies was recently named  the #1 Family Resort in the Country by USA Today.  There are tons of things for partners and kids to do onsite and in the area.  A good excuse to extend your stay.
