Leadership Council

Our Leadership Council is a group of energetic young professionals that get involved at our Center and provide leadership and support through fundraising and friend-raising. Every March, the “LC” hosts our famous Stars & Strikes Celebrity Bowling event, and every December, the LC hosts a month-long Toy, Book and Clothing Drive in support of our Home for the Holidays Festival at the end of the year. Throughout the year there are opportunities to mentor young people and host Teen Nights at APCH, as well as participate in a Back to School Festival and Career Development events.
