We are excited to be kicking off a new season of leadership, engagement and impact in the Pittsburgh Region, and we invite you to be a part of it!

Our goals are:

* To building lifelong habits and skills associated with leadership and community and public service;

* To multiply service, volunteering and civic engagement in high schools and high-school-aged out-of-school programs;

* To train and empower student leadership teams to drive service in their communities.

At the Jefferson Awards, nothing makes us happier than empowering students who are committed to improving their communities and making the world a better place to live. By being part of Students In Action, you join tens of thousands of students from more than 325 high schools and out-of-school programs across the United States who are leading the way by Thinking BIG, taking effective ACTION, and creating positive IMPACT.

The SIA Training program will help you learn skills in project management, marketing, fundraising, media skills and so much more. We look forward to seeing your team at upcoming training conferences this year, where you’ll have a chance to meet students from other SIA schools.

Please check back often, as we will be sharing information on how to register for events, information on service opportunities, links to partner agencies, scholarship applications, and more. We also hope to feature your team’s service project, so please be in touch to share the good news!
