The Role of a VF

Venture Fellows are carefully selected and trained 2nd-year leaders who possess the following competencies: Leadership Character, Diplomacy, Emotional Intelligence, Adaptability and Resilience, and Effective Communication.  Each year, approximately 28 rising 2Y students are selected to serve as Venture Fellows and 2 rising 2Y students are selected as Venture Fellow Coordinators.

Venture Fellows are responsible for assisting with Venture marketing efforts, conducting pre-trip information sessions and activities, serving as a coach and facilitator during ventures, and collecting information after the ventures to ensure continuous improvement of the program.
