Neighborhood Education Programs

The Neighborhood Education Programs offer learning support and enrichment to elementary and middle school aged students in Pitt’s Neighborhood Commitment communities. Borne out of community requests to increase the educational opportunities for their young people, these programs involve various Pitt schools, faculty, and student groups to impact hundreds of young people each year.  

Developed with the valuable feedback of our neighbors, each neighborhood education program offers different features to fit the desired goals of the neighborhood in which it is offered.

For example, in Homewood, PittEnrich enhances the capabilities of elementary-aged students in the areas of Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. In the Hill District, STEAM Saturdays use cutting edge enrichment programs to spark the interest of elementary and middle school aged students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.).

Part of what makes the Neighborhood Education Program so successful is that they ensure our students’ basic needs are cared for, such as offering food and transportation, eliminating barriers to participation.
