These achievements include:

·      170+ young adults successfully completed a summer Learn and Earn internship at local businesses and summer camps in the area,

·      22 high school students earned college credits in the Carlow Summer College Program,

·      3 young adults led financial literacy trainings for 100+ students thanks to support from Citizens Bank

·      100+ students recovered failed high school credits to get back on the path to graduating on time,

·      and MUCH MORE.


This is a great OPPORTUNITY to hear positive testimony from youth who participated in these programs. We will also have free food and music.


This is also an opportunity to thank the sponsors and partners who made these programs happen, including: 3 Rivers Workforce Investment Board, City of Pittsburgh—Pittsburgh Partnership, Neighborhood Learning Alliance, Pittsburgh Public Schools, Citizens Bank, Eastside Neighborhood Employment Center, Allegheny County, and the 70+ businesses and organizations that hosted summer learn and earn interns!
