From the 'Burgh to the 'Burg: Amplifying Student Voice
The Pittsburgh Public Schools Students and Government Council, or the SAGC, is a group of highly passionate students committed to furthering civic engagement in Pittsburgh and beyond. Students serve as liaisons between their community and the school board, city council, and state legislatures. Students learn about district, city, and state policies and political structures from local and state representatives. Students on the SAGC are currently working with representatives from the City of Pittsburgh to allocate funds for a city district block grant.
