Student Leadership Council

The Student Leadership Council (SLC) of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida is an enthusiastic group of young men and women committed to promoting volunteerism and advocating for the families residing at the Ronald McDonald House in Pensacola, Florida. Each year the council adds new student members who demonstrate a strong interest in and commitment to helping the families who call the Ronald McDonald House “home.”

Students selected for membership to this leadership council will have the opportunity to grow personally, through leadership and life skills development, all while engaging in volunteer and fundraising activities designed to meet the unique needs of our community.

Please note that membership dues are $25.00 annually.

The application for the 2020-2021 term is now available. Please note that the application closes at 5:00 pm on April 15, 2020.
