Portola Valley

Junior Board

The Junior Board was established by the Club Sponsors in September 2017 to increase a sense of community among the Club’s teenage members, and to provide a leadership opportunity for the Club’s members who are older and have a higher certification, but who are not eligible for National USPC opportunities.

Who can be part of Junior Board?

PVPC members who are 13 to 18 years old, and certified at least D3 HM, are eligible to be members of the Junior Board.

What does Junior Board do?

The purposes of the Junior Board are to:

  • Organize and deliver a program of D-HM instruction for the club, particularly aimed at the youth members;
  • Encourage and organize community service opportunities for PVPC’s members, e.g. invasive plant clearance at the Horse Park, clean-up day at NCEFT, trail maintenance at local preserves;
  • Organize small-scale social events for the youth members of the Club, e.g. movie night, pizza after HM;
  • Provide a formal conduit for ideas to be presented to the Club’s officers from the youth members.
