PRYSE Academy succeeds because we have a dedicated group of counselors who volunteer their time to teach our campers. They are dedicated to empowering refugee youth and providing them with opportunities for academic and personal growth. 

Our program began with the generous college student volunteers from FORGE at Carnegie Mellon and FORGE and Keep It Real at the University of Pittsburgh. We were soon joined by wonderful Senior Counselors from several other colleges and Junior Interns from local high schools.

Counselor applications are live!
