Come learn about Pioneer Valley Citizen Summer (PVCS). A few students from the 2013 cohort will speak about their experience and answer questions.
PVCS is a public service learning program unlike any other offered at Amherst College. It is a residential learning opportunity where students:
-Live together on campus
-Work for a public service organization in either Holyoke or Amherst for June and July
-Participate in a weekly seminar that focuses on bridging experiences in the community with analytical, theoretical, reflective and interpersonal work
Together, students explore meaningful ways to promote social justice and thoughtful, positive community engagement while gaining important work experience. During PVCS, students have the opportunity to dialogue through difference and engage in reflective practices that inspire a greater self-awareness. If you’re interested in social justice, meaningful community engagement, forming a deep connection with your peers and learning more about yourself and the community, PVCS may be the summer opportunity for you!
