Family Contribution – NHI learning experiences like most camps, retreats, conferences, and seminars have associated costs and financial obligations. Long ago, NHI ventured into this work by collaborating with university partners and community supporters to make the experiences more accessible to students. The Great Debate alone would cost $1,000 on average if it were not for the investments made by our host institutions and team of volunteers. The tuition or family contribution for each experience reflects approximately one third of the total costs. In some cases, students qualify for support from their schools or school district. In many cases, students will employ NHI’s sponsor program or on-line based fundraising tool to marshal their family contribution. Remember, two thirds of the program’s expenses and costs are never passed on to you. We will work a reasonable plan or fundraising program to help you with your family contribution.
