The PCA will need to be able to actively participate and assist participants during volunteer projects and instructional classes while out in the community and on-site. In addition, the PCA will actively participate in a variety of physical activities such as fitness, swimming, and golf. The PCA will support clients in programs both at The Els Center of Excellence and during outings across community-based settings.
