PASAP believes that the health of our youth is the basis of our future. We recognize that there are detrimental influences in the areas of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, mental health, as well as other concerns that will continue to adversely affect the health of our youth. As a result of this recognition and our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our youth, the Pennsylvania Association of Student Assistance Professionals is committed to supporting and networking in the areas of prevention, intervention, treatment, aftercare, ongoing support services, and education to all those individuals or organizations who foster this same commitment.
In order to support these efforts, PASAP offers professional development opportunities to school and child-serving agencies who support the Student Assistance Program in Pennsylvania. Professional development opportunities are offered by PASAP through webinars, regional workshops, and the annual conference. As a result, PASAP is offering a special recognition to Student Assistance professionals who are PASAP MEMBERS and are certified by the Pennsylvania Network of Student Assistance Services as having met the standards and competencies for the Pennsylvania Student Assistance Training and are approved by the Student Assistance Program Interagency Committee.
