What is the Pittsburgh Village Project?
The Pittsburgh Village Project is an outreach initiative, uniting local individuals and organizations to provide Pre K-12th grade students with equitable access to education through personalized, community-inspired learning. Access to learning has been an area of need before and during the COVID-19 school closures and beyond. Moreover, students without internet access may have experienced additional opportunity gaps. The primary purpose of this project is to design and distribute real-world, cross-curricular educational resources and curricula that spark curiosity, social justice, engagement and wellness for all students.
The Pittsburgh Village Project operates under the main belief that all students deserve access to relevant, engaging lessons at all times. With numerous organizations already dedicated to educational equity in the Greater Pittsburgh (Pgh) Area, we operate to help reduce potential gaps in resource sharing by bringing these members of the “Village” together. Our goal is to ensure every child can enjoy learning and wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
