SoCo(Social Committee) and GYSP(GAMES Youth Service Project) assist the Academy Coordinator of Student Life in executing ideas for the Academy community. An eventful and awesome year at the Academy includes the help of these two essential Academy clubs. Numerous officer and committee chair positions are available, and you can apply during Orientation! Taking part in any of these officer positions can provide growth in leadership, communication, interpersonal skills and confidence, and can prepare you for your transition after the Academy. If you have ideas for SoCo or GYSP events, talk to the Academy Coordinator of Student Life, and we will put forth the effort to make it happen!
