Pi Alpha Young Alumni Committee

Stay connected to the cause, help steer where the funding goes and increase the impact for our partners across the nation. Pi Alpha Young Alumni Committee provides a unique opportunity for Pi Alphas to help both grow cycling grants and determine their recipients for Journey of Hope and Gear Up Florida.


Journey of Hope and Gear Up Florida awards grants to many partner organizations along each route. Through these committees, one for each route, young Pi Alpha alumni have the opportunity to help select which organizations will receive these grants. In addition, committee members fundraise or donate to the cause, effectively doubling the amount of money that can be awarded. Prior to the kick off for each event, committee members have the chance to connect with this year’s team to help them understand how recipient were selected. In doing so, these young alumni also provide a tangible example of what meaningful alumni engagement can look like after the trip ends.


  • The committee is made up of Pi Alpha alumni having participated in an Ability Experience Cycling Event in the past five years.
  • Commit to serve through the summer of 2021 (the work of the committee will not require a full twelve months of work).
