$49,500 Grant from PPG Foundation will continue to help us incorporate STEAM programming into our Digital Inclusion work in 2023-24

Sep 11, 2023

Since 2019 the Digital Inclusion team at Neighborhood Allies has invested in educational STEAM and computer literacy programming at neighborhood community centers in the Hill District and Homewood neighborhoods for youth and adults.

Last year, the PPG Foundation provided us a generous $45,000 grant that supported over 1,500 low-income youth in their educational journey and the opportunity to engage with diverse PPG volunteers on a quarterly basis. With this funding, we reached 1,549 students with innovative programming at our program partner sites.

Today, we’re excited to share that we are continuing this partnership with PPG Foundation with an additional $49,500 grant to continue this important work. With this partnership, over 300 low-income youth will experience hands-on STEAM activities such as 3D printing, laser cutting, coding, chemistry experiments, and testing scientific theory.

We’d like to thank the PPG Foundation for this financial support and partnership. Our work would not be possible without this type of support. Thank you for your commitment and investment as we engage Pittsburgh area students and organizations with innovative tools that expand opportunity for transformative community change.
