Sponsor PCC 2022 Today!

On October 21, 2022, the statewide Pre-College and Youth Outreach Conference (PCC) will be hosted for the first time in Grand Rapids, MI, by Grand Valley State University. Reflecting on the important challenge before us, this year’s theme is Mind the GAP: Building Bridges for Bouncing Back.

We bring Michigan’s outreach professionals together so they can connect, share promising practices, and strengthen our support system for Michigan’s K-12 students. To do this, we need you—by partnering with us and sponsoring this year’s conference, you can help us begin this process of building back from the pandemic.
