Leadership Starts Here

Become a Leader

Become an Outdoor Action Leader

Being an OA Leader is one of the most valuable things you can do to help next year's freshmen class have a successful transition into Princeton. OA Leaders are role models and mentors for 60% of the incoming class. Ask anyone you know who is an OA Leader (and there are more than 300 of them on campus) and they'll tell you it's an absolutely incredible experience. Any student can learn the skills needed to lead a group on an OA Trip and with the diversity of trips we offer (base camp, biking, backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, sustainable farming) there's a trip for you. Don't miss out on this special Princeton experience. Train to become an OA Leader this semester.
