The Junior Council Person (JCP)

This program provides youth in your
community with an opportunity to get
engaged in borough government and
develop leadership skills. It also allows
borough officials to serve as mentors to
students who will be future leaders in
their communities.

Since 2000, PSAB has been encouraging
high school students to get involved in
borough government by becoming a JCP.
Since that time, hundreds of students
have participated in the JCP Program in
boroughs throughout PA.

Started in 1999 with the belief that the outreach of
both the community to the youth and the youth to
