Want To Be a JagVenture Leader?

Our JagVenture Student Leaders are crucial to the overall JagVenture program as they are charged with creating an inclusive, fun, and supportive environment for first and second year students while also fostering learning and growth for participants.  

Students from all majors and class standings are encouraged to apply to be a JagVenture Leader. Our leaders are inclusive, have a desire to grow as a leader, and have a passion for IUPUI and helping others.

The JagVenture Leader Experience

As a JagVenture Student Leader you would experience many opportunities that are designed to contribute to your overall growth. Below is a list of experiences that you will be expected to take part in as a JagVenture leader:

  • The adventure starts in May 2017 for our first retreat as a JagVenture Student Leader team. This is a full day at the end of May designed to help all the leaders get to know each other as a team.
  • The adventure continues throughout the Summer of 2017. We will continue to interact with each other as a team online by discussing a book that we are all reading together.
  • The adventure gears up for our two day training on Friday and Saturday, August 4th and 5th on the IUPUI campus. This training will be on a variety of topics such as leadership development and social justice to prepare you to be a leader during the JagVenture camp.
  • Then, it is show time! JagVenture will be Friday-Sunday August 11-13th, 2017. You will be given a small group of students to lead through the JagVenture camp experience.
