Pittsburgh CONNECTS

I chair the Technology Committee for the Neighborhood Learning Alliance. With funds from the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program and local foundations the Neighborhood Learning Alliance, an umbrella organization working with over 40 faith-based and community based organizations in the Pittsburgh region, developed a network of four digital hubs across six Pittsburgh’s lower income neighborhoods. Equipped with high speed connectivity and laptop computers, these labs will bring the power of the internet to many of the City’s most vulnerable children, families and individuals who too often are being left behind. The hubs can be found in Homewood, Hilltop (Mt. Oliver/ Knoxville), Bloomfield/Garfield, and the West End. The activities include employment training, after-school programming, wellness training, and digital media.
