Junior Council Person Program

Junior Council Person Program logo

The Junior Council Person (JCP) 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.  To participate in the program, complete and return the information portion of the Brochure and return it to Stephanie Drake, Deputy Executive Director and JCP Program Director at sdrake@boroughs.org
