Student Connections Committee

Our goal is to connect students with professionals in the parks and recreation field. While helping students gain experience, knowledge, and excitement about the opportunities that are available to them through our organization and the greater parks and recreation field.

Currently, the SCC focuses on reaching out to state universities offering degree programs that directly relate to Parks and Recreation by connecting with students and faculty through campus visits and conference opportunities such as the student summit and a mentorship program.
