What is Service Council?

Fifteen students comprise the Service Council. These Council members typically have served as Directors in the Center for Service and Learning, and are responsible for training current Executive Directors and Program Directors in leadership skills and program administration. Each Service Council member oversees five or six of the Y-Serve’s 70 programs.


The Service Council operates under the close supervision of the Y-Serve’s director who trains them in advanced leadership skills. Council members in turn train student leaders, plan events, conduct regular stewardships, and plan and attend several student-leader retreats during the year.
