The Public Service Academy is all about helping people and programs grow. Each fun and interactive training session provides tools that are useful to individuals, at the same time that they help leaders and volunteers provide higher quality programming.
Additional resources are available for leaders who want help creating quality, program-specific workshops.
Trainings and resources are available to all undergraduate affiliates of Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) and the Harvard Public Service Network (PSN).
