Centre Foundation is looking for Centre County high school students who are interested in making an impact in their community!
Fall recruitment is now open for Centre PACT (Philanthropic Actions Created by Teens). Applications and letters of recommendation are due by Friday, September 15, 2017.
Meetings will be held monthly during the school year, beginning on Sunday, September 24th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at Centre Foundation's office in State College (1377 Ridge Master Drive, State College, PA 16803).
“Centre PACT is 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, philanthropic, 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 discover more about Centre County, each other, and themselves,” noted Kunkel. “Last year, this group awarded over $8,000 in grants to six local non-profit organizations! We can’t wait to see what this year’s group of student leaders will accomplish.”
Applications are available here.
