Adventure WV runs summer First-Year Trips (AWVFYT) for over 1,000 incoming first year students to develop strong friendships, adventure around the state, learn about WVU, and engage in relevant discussions about their transition to college. AWVFYT Trip Leaders and Program Support Staff are the backbone of these programs; facilitating positive and transformative experiences.

Each year we invite 20-40 new staff to join our Leadership Training Program and Summer Leadership Team- we are proud of our small, dedicated, and outstanding community of student staff members. Working for Adventure WV is an exciting and rewarding summer experience! Think you’d like to be a part of this community?

Our staff go through an extensive training during the Spring semester. Accordingly, we recruit and select leader trainees in the Fall.
