Prior participation in a Wharton Leadership Venture is not necessary.  In other words, if you haven’t participated in a venture you may still apply to be a Venture Fellow.

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 second year students are selected to serve as Venture Fellows and 2 rising second year 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.
