Announcing Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania’s Innovative Youth Workforce Development Programming for Summer 2020

BGCWPA and Partner4Work are bringing big thinking and innovation to deliver a world-class summer employment program that continues to introduce young people to paid job experiences, explore careers and their interests while keeping them safe during uncertain times. Learn & Earn may look different from the year’s past and we are committed to moving forward, adjusting, and maintaining program integrity to provide the opportunity for young adults to grow. 

This year at BGCWPA is excited to leverage our expertise in innovative learning practices to offer participants a blend of highly engaging project based learning experiences and personalized work readiness elective offerings with the support of our learning management system, LiFT and partners like MPowerhouse, Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy and Techniques4Learning. Some of the elective offerings will include our Artificial Intelligence Pathways Institute, Drone Academy, Beats2Rhyme and more! 

Our highly trained staff have developed these mastery and project based programs to keep our Learn & Earn teens engaged and learning in a blended virtual setting. Pending COVID-19 restrictions, members may also have the opportunity to complete part of their program within our brick and mortar Clubhouses. Participants will also have access to food resources and technology as needed to complete the program.
