Grant from PPG Foundation will help incorporate STEAM programming into our Digital Inclusion work

Oct 6, 2022

Since 2019, Neighborhood Allies has invested in educational science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) programming at neighborhood community centers in the Hill District and Homewood as part of our Digital Inclusion programming. A generous grant from the PPG Foundation will leverage this work by bridging the educational-workforce gap early on, by connecting young people with diverse professionals who look like them so they know more STEAM educational and career options are available.

With this new partnership, over 200 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.
