Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama Student Leadership Council (SLC) is a group of young men and women committed to promoting volunteerism by serving the families residing at Ronald McDonald House of Birmingham, Alabama. Each year the council is looking for students who demonstrate an interest in and commitment to helping the families who call the Ronald McDonald House “home.”

Students selected for membership to this leadership council will have the opportunity to develop self-confidence and leadership skills while engaging in age-appropriate activities designed to meet the unique needs of our community. Dues are $25 yearly.

Applications for the 2021-2022 Student Leadership Council are now closed. Thank you for your interest!
