Pioneers for Change Over View 

Pioneers for Change (PFC), run through the Center for Community Engagement, is a paid service learning, peer-to-peer, leadership program. The mission of PFC is to provide opportunities for growth and development through team building, service projects, and service-learning internships that encourage students to be leaders on and off campus as well as catalysts for positive change within the community.

The Program is based on the three pillars of personalprofessional, and social responsibility.

The Center for Community Engagement hires students for PFC every spring semester for the upcoming academic year.
