What is PASC?
The mission of the Pennsylvania Association of Student Councils is to offer year-round opportunities to develop and apply leadership and life skills for middle level and high school students throughout Pennsylvania. This goal will be accomplished by disseminating information for building effective organizations, recognizing individual and school achievements, supporting community service, and providing positive, enthusiastic forums for networking and sharing ideas. By promoting an increased awareness of these activities, we will strive for growth and diversity.
