Rebranding of Picket Fence Academy - Introducing the PFA Institute

June 12, 2019


JUNE 1, 2019 -- Picket Fence Academy is excited to announce its rebranding initiative. Over the past year and a half, Picket Fence Academy has found itself expanding its audience and their subsequent needs. Now, Picket Fence Academy has realized the importance of accessibility, not only in competitive speech and debate, but in advocacy and civic engagement spaces, which is why we're excited to announce the PFA Institute.

The PFA Institute is the new Picket Fence Academy. We focus on cultivating the next generation of changemakers and trailblazers through mentorship and leadership education programs. Our newest program is the Future Incubator, a three-year mentorship initiative, in which students learn how to create a change in their community through their own passion projects. The Future Incubator will be held through chapters throughout the country. The PFA Institute will be establishing its new program in August 2019.

The PFA Institute is now hiring for its premiere national executive team. We are looking for high school and college undergraduate students to fulfill the roles of Director of Communications, Director of Outreach, Director of Financing, Director of Strategy, Director of Programming, and National Chapter Leader. More information and applications can be found here.
