Prepare-to-Prosper partnership with the City and Pittsburgh Public Schools' Career technical Education (CTE) Kick Off
We were delighted to attend Mayor Gainey’s announcement on September 16, of the “Prepare to Prosper” program – a new partnership between the City and Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Career Technical Education Program, highlighting students focused on workforce development. Soon, they will move out of shadowing workers and begin paid internships not only with the city, but in other industries as well, according to Angela Mike, CTE’s Executive Director. The Lower Hill Redevelopment’s Buccini/Pollin Group is one of forty companies to have partnered with the PPS-CTE Program and held a “Career Exploration Day” event earlier this year at PPG Paints Arena with other members of the Development Team. We provided boots for the seniors going into the Carpenter’s Apprenticeship Program, paid senior EMT students’ drivers licenses to become an EMT, which helps to build a pipeline for the development and public safety in the region and especially the Lower Hill Development. In addition, the Lower Hill Team won an Industry Partner Award through both the Pittsburgh Penguin’s David Morehouse and The Buccini/Pollin Group’s Dr. Kimberly C Ellis, for our enthusiastic support and partnership. We will report in coming newsletters regarding exciting internship programs for 2023.
