LEADERSHIP 
OPPORTUNITIES AT PVTC 

High School Youth Council

ABOUT THE YOUTH COUNCIL 

At PVTC, we are proud to offer numerous leadership programs for our High School aged students. From our after-school Internship Program to our NEW High School Youth Council, we seek to offer numerous opportunities for our students to use their voice, build community, and make a difference to the PVTC community and beyond. 

The PVTC Youth Council is a new leadership program for high school students who wish to have a voice in PVTC’s programming and footprint on the world. Participants will engage in conversations around I.D.E.A. initiatives, social media output, and show selection. Youth Council members will also organize social events, workshops, fundraisers and field trips for the high school community. At PVTC, we look forward to this program and truly giving our high schoolers an opportunity to lead with strength and move PVTC forward towards a fun, engaging and inclusive place for all. 

 

MEETINGS

The PVTC Youth Council plans to meet the First Tuesday of each month, beginning with our first meeting on October 4th from 5 - 6:30pm. Students can Zoom into meetings if attending school out of the area or otherwise unable to attend in-person. Participants will be expected to attend at least two meetings per quarter and volunteer for PVTC for at least two hours per quarter outside of meeting times.

 

Volunteer hours are available to all participants for all meetings and participation.
