Our Youth & Media program kept themselves busy this summer by giving 18 kids from around Southwestern PA the opportunity to learn leadership skills and the tools to start a career in the entertainment industry.

We partnered with Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board & Learn and Earn Pittsburgh to give Pittsburgh’s youth an opportunity to jumpstart their careers. During the summer, our crew got the chance to film Steelers great, Jerome Bettis, as well as meeting and filming other kids working at different organizations within the Learn and Earn program.

What’s summer when it’s all work and no play, though? Our team also participated in field trips that exposed them to all that Pittsburgh has to offer. Plus, they loved the free pizza perk!

We’re so incredibly proud of the youth that we worked with this summer. Despite their age, they showed impressive responsibility and work ethic, and we know they’re destined to make a mark in Pittsburgh and beyond. Check out the hard work they put into the video below that they created for Learn and Earn Pittsburgh!
