Our Mission

Westchester Putnam Rockland Counseling Association (WPRCA) is an organization made up of prodominently school counselors in elementary, middle and high schools, as well as college counselors. Members come together for professional training programs, support and advocacy. WPRCA members have an abundance of professional talent which is a tremendous resource from which to draw for new ideas and help in our efforts to provide service. WPRCA meetings and other professional gatherings provide an excellent vehicle for establishing contacts and exchanging ideas. In short, being an active member of WPRCA is a professional responsibility and an excellent opportunity for professional growth and discourse.

What We Do

We plan approximately 5 events each school year that pertain to a variety of topics relevant for primary, secondary and/or college counseling. These events are typically sponsored by local colleges, include dinner and an education about the sponsoring institution as well as from the guest speaker of the event. For the cost of $30, your annual membership, you have access to all 5 events!
