AWVFYT Staff | Summer 2020


2020 Required Commitments 
Trip Models and Positions 

Adventure WV runs summer First-Year Trips (AWVFYT) for over 1,000 incoming freshman 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, helping facilitate 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 Leadership Training Program provides extensive training during the Spring semester.  Accordingly, we recruit and select leader trainees in the Fall. 

Consider stopping by our Info Session or Info Table to ask us specific questions, or to simply learn more about what it means to work as a student staff member for Adventure WV First-Year Trips!
