HARRISBURG – Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York) announced today she has accepted an appointment to the Pennsylvania Labor and Industry’s PennSERVE advisory board.
“One of the goals of the board is to encourage youth to participate in community service across the state. Even before I took office two years ago, I have been a huge proponent of youth in the 169th District taking a more active role in their communities. I’m glad to be given the opportunity to help boost youth involvement at a statewide level,” Klunk said. “I am grateful to House Majority Leader Dave Reed (R-Indiana) for appointing me to the PennSERVE advisory board.”
In addition, the board also works to disseminate information concerning community service and monitor the effectiveness and geographical distribution of community service programs. The board may also develop new, innovative community service programs to better serve Pennsylvania’s communities.
PennSERVE, which is overseen by the Department of Labor and Industry, is the umbrella agency for volunteerism and community service initiatives throughout the Commonwealth. PennSERVE is also the administrative entity charged with monitoring and overseeing the AmeriCorps State programs in Pennsylvania.
