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 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.
