THE TEAM

We work to create greater opportunity, for the youth, by the youth

Executive Team

Message from the CEO

On behalf of our entire team, we thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and our mission. Over the past few years especially, we've seen the impact that youth can have on our nations and lives. Your support is monumental in providing a space for underrepresented youth in these integral movements.

 

I started the PFA Institute as a sophomore in high school. Ever since then, we've seen our programs and ideas reach every corner of this nation and beyond. Our team's diverse perspectives allow us to cater our program to anyone who wants to join. We're grateful to each and every one of our supporters in these times of growth and cultivation.

 

Moving forward, we hope to continue creating accessibility and resources for impassioned youth to create change. We're expanding our programs internationally, and bringing local resources to our existing programs. Big or small, we know that this is impossible without your help. You can show your support by sharing our work, becoming a mentor, or donating. And on behalf of the entire PFA Institute, thank you. 

 

In solidarity,
