The first step towards the summer of a lifetime

Apply for a Summer Event

The Ability Experience is committed to using shared experiences to support people with disabilities and developing the men of Pi Kappa Phi into servant leaders. We seek applicants who are committed to this mission and the integrity of the organization.

The selection process will start with the application below. Once submitted, one of our staff members will get right back to you to schedule a call. This staff member will be your Staff Lead throughout the application process.

Afterward, you’ll fill out a member profile and have an interview with your staff lead. Your Staff Lead will work with you in this meeting to review your profile and worksheet to help you ensure that you are informed and confident to start preparing for your summer event.

Additional requirements may be requested at the discretion of our staff, which could include: the submission of a letter of recommendation, a background check provided through Pi Kappa Phi leadership, or a secondary call.

Applicants must be an associate, active, or alumni member of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. Undergraduates must be in good standing with their chapter and have a cumulative or previous semester GPA of 2.7 or higher.

Consideration will be given to those who are committed to developing themselves as servant leaders, contributing to their community, and are able to invest in the Journey of Hope/Gear Up Florida experience and continued support of The Ability Experience. The Ability Experience does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its programs.
