PWS Committees

  • Committee members conduct research, conceptualize new community programs, create our educational resources, and propose policy recommendations to local leaders. 
  • Committee members have the opportunity to work closely with numerous partner organizations as well as collaborate with field experts to revise curriculum. 
  • While each committee completes an assorted set of projects annually, each of our three committees is rooted in one topic of interest: youth education, community health, and community empowerment. 

  • Each committee has a designated committee leader, who meets with potential partners and brainstorms preliminary outlines for new programs. 
  • Committee leaders assign committee members personalized tasks of research and curriculum development. 
  • Committees meet weekly to present progress to one another and synthesize workshops, but members work individually to curate content and design immersive learning opportunities. 
  • Periodically, professors, medical professionals, and civic figures meet with committees to connect with PWS and provide guidance. 

  • Given the heterogeneous nature of committee projects, we search for indvidauls with diverse backgrounds and passions. In particular, we value teaching experience, entrepreneurial interests, and political involvement. 
  • After being accepted onto a PWS committee, new members are mentored by experienced members in the unique process of structuring inclusive programs and delivering information through interactive experiences.

  • In the past, PWS has helped several of our student leaders earn internships with our partner organizations and mentors. 

  • Each committee meets virtually once a week, but each committee member also has specific asynchronous responsibilities.
