Centre Foundation is looking for local high school students who are interested in making an impact in their community.  Fall recruitment is now open for a brand new program called Centre PACT (Philanthropic Actions Created by Teens). Interested applicants can bring completed applications and their letters of recommendation with them to the first meeting, which will be Sunday, September 20th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at Centre Foundation's office in State College (1377 Ridgemaster Drive, State College, PA 16803).

 

“Centre PACT will be a great vehicle for students from across the county to come together, discuss issues facing their peer group, learn about potential solutions that non-profits offer, and ultimately fund the proactive program that they think will be most effective,” explained Molly Kunkel, Centre Foundation Executive Director. 

 

Centre PACT is a hands-on philanthropy program that will help to hone students’ leadership, communication, professional, compassion, and networking skills.  This unique program and the volunteer hours it entails will be a highlight on resumes and college applications.  Centre PACT participants will also learn how to become more engaged Centre County citizens.

 

“This is a student-driven, hands-on, community-focused group that will learn a lot about Centre County, each other, and themselves,” noted Kunkel.

 

Applications are available online at centre-foundation.org.
