Our Story

Entering PCR back in 2018, I was a freshman starting high school, trying to have something to put down on my resume. I started my journey by cleaning parks for months before starting to lead small groups as a team leader. Working step by step, I became a part of LEAP, which is dedicated to helping teens show their potential. It took me two years before I started running my own programs with other volunteers. This is an opportunity no other place would offer with the freedom in leadership. Being a part of LEAP contributed to truly understanding the meaning of a leader and teamwork.  With people coming and going, I decided to stay in this organization that I would now call "home." After 5 years, I am now working as PCR’s Volunteer Coordinator while studying nursing at New York University. Being in the place where I am now, I am thankful for PCR and LEAP. Therefore, come join us for a lifelong enrichment opportunity to influence the community!
