Venture Out trips rely on safe and competent outdoor leaders. The trip leader training program offers formal training focused on outdoor leadership and technical and interpersonal skills. Being a Venture Out leader is about helping others discover and enjoy the great outdoors.

If you are interested in developing new skills, meeting new people, and working outside, then Venture Out has a great student leadership opportunity for you. The success of Venture Out trips is directly related to its trip leading staff. Venture Out currently offers multiple levels of training. First you may become a trip leader candidate. If you show motivation, work ethic and traits of an outdoor leader, you may be asked to become a leader in training. All Venture Out leaders and leaders-in-training must complete a series of clinics and training that are designed to teach them the necessary skills needed to become safe, educated, and competent leaders in the field.
