During its forty-year history Outdoor Action (OA) has achieved incredible success. It has transformed the orientation process for incoming students at Princeton. In addition, OA has built a unique learning laboratory where students have the opportunity to practice real leadership in service to others. OA Leaders are some of Princeton’s most successful and influential leaders across the campus. The overall Outdoor Action Program is also one of Princeton’s greatest untapped resources. Expanding the program is clearly one of the best investments Princeton can make in student leadership development over the next decade.

Prizes and Awards won by OA Leaders & Staff

Students involved in Outdoor Action excel both in academics and in campus activities from varsity sports, to student government, and student organizations. The leadership skills they develop through Outdoor Action serve the larger Princeton campus and beyond as these students go on to be leaders throughout their careers. Here are some of the awards and prizes received by Outdoor Action Leaders.

Leadership 101 & 102 Training

Developing effective Leadership and Group Facilitation skills are essential for all OA Leaders, and anyone serving in a leadership role. There are two workshops offered by OA which focus on Leadership Development. You will learn about your personal style of leadership and how to modify your leadership style to work with the specific needs of your group. You'll also learn important concepts like building an effective group contract, listening and debriefing skills as well as fun team building games and activities to help bring a group together.
