Leading the Passage Experience

Passage leadership positions are open to Wheaton upperclassmen who have a passion for Wheaton College, a willingness to contribute to the experience of incoming students, and a desire to be developed as a leader in the Wheaton College community.

All Passage leaders will receive specialized training prior to the start of the Passage program. To ensure that leaders are adequately prepared, our Passage Leader training program equips individuals to recognize the spiritual, social, emotional, and physical needs of the groups they will be leading. Additionally, Passage leaders learn facilitative skills that will contribute to positive group development and encourage interaction with course themes and experiences.
