student council

A note from the council:

       The PCA Youth Center Student Council is made up of student volunteers who come together under the same mission and drive---to promote love and care for the community by creating and supporting hands-on learning opportunities for the youth demographic and upcoming generation. Here at PCA, you explore ideas, encourage collaboration, inspire leadership, and connect with the community. 

       Our Student Council is dedicated to creating fun and educational events for our youth community. In general, we plan and host new events every 2 months based on public interest. Some of the past events we have held include Chinese art festivals, STEM night, career-oriented panel discussions, skill workshops such as coding or Speech and Debate, and an online escape room. Currently, we are running our Pittsburgh Online Youtuber event. In order to efficiently create events that run smoothly while maintaining our social media and website, our student council is divided into sub-committees (general managers, public relations, webmasters/bloggers, and event planners) that meet separately but come together as a whole at our weekly council meeting. Each member is essential to the overall council and is responsible for their own part. Our members develop leadership skills and learn how to collaborate and exchange ideas, allowing them to broaden and expand their network with each other and the community. In addition, members get at least 40 hours of volunteer work every year. 

         We also provide volunteer opportunities for those not in our council. In the past, we’ve organized small groups of volunteers from our PCA volunteer pool to help at the Jubilee Kitchen and the Ronald McDonald House of Charity. For general events, these volunteers may also be asked to help with proctoring, setup, and tear down at the events held by the student council as well.

        If you are interested in joining our student council or volunteer group, apply today! We welcome anyone from any background and we look forward to seeing some new faces!

Best,

The PCA Youth Center Student Council
