Our Team

Providence Student Union unites and develops an entire team of youth leaders, staff, and adult allies all in support of building student power.

Youth Delegates

Each PSU chapter can elect or appoint up to 2 student delegates to represent their school in the Citywide Leadership Team. This team makes major decisions for PSU, from choosing and running campaigns, to overseeing PSU’s budget, to managing partnerships, and more.





More will be added after delegate elections in Fall 2017.


Youth Staff

Our youth staff and recent alumni take on important roles at the organization, including running our donor fundraising, scheduling and facilitating trainings, and building out our membership strategy.

Adult Staff

Providence Student Union is youth-led, but staff organizers serve an important role in advising, training, and supporting young leaders to make informed and effective decisions.

Board of Directors

Providence Student Union’s Board of Directors is responsible for sustaining the organization long-term. The Board provides fundraising, financial, and legal support, and helps to supervise and advise the Executive Director. The Board does not make any decisions regarding programming or campaigns; these powers are reserved for the Delegates on the Citywide Leadership Team.
