Welcome to PCC 2021

Thank you for being with us during the 13th Annual Pre-College and Youth Outreach Conference (PCC). We are excited you are here to learn, network, and share your expertise with your outreach colleagues. The 2021 PCC theme “New Horizons: The Innovation, Resilience, and Perseverance of K-12 Students” will bring together over 40 speakers from around the country.

As we began planning the 2021 Conference back in January 2021, we thought: “Where do we go from here?” We just hosted a successful virtual conference in November 2020, bringing together approximately 245 outreach professionals from across the U.S. Traditionally, the conference is hosted by one institution and supported by a steering committee composed of representatives from four-year institutions, community colleges, and community-based organizations.

Today is brought to you by 16 institutions, represented by 25 members of the steering committee. The committee chose this theme to celebrate the amazing outreach efforts put forth by many institutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is an honor you are here with us today. We are proud and excited about this conference and all the work that will be shared.

We hope you enjoy it and we will see you next year in October 2022 for the 14th Annual Conference at Grand Valley State University!
