New Voices of Youth
Do you know any middle school or high school students who are passionate about keeping the great city of Pittsburgh clean and beautiful? The Pittsburgh Foundation is excited to announce an online competition for innovative, young minds to strategize and get behind environmental solutions for the Pittsburgh region!
The prize? Up to $2500 in project funding as well as giving the next generation an opportunity to dream big about making lasting, impacting change in their city!
The Pittsburgh Foundation is teaming up with The Breathe Project to create New Voices of Youth: a program dedicated to improving the quality of life in the Pittsburgh region by evaluating and addressing community issues, promoting responsible philanthropy, and connecting donors to the critical needs of the community.
Participants will work alongside adult mentors to strategize plans that raise awareness about air quality challenges in the Pittsburgh area, as well as methods to clean up the city's air.
April 8th marks the closing date for first round of students to submit their ideas that center around innovative solutions to community issues to benefit Southwestern Pennsylvania.
Ideas can be submitted at the New Voices of Youth website: http://new-voices-of-youth.org/. More information can be found here as well.
Spread the word to any student that you may know who is passionate about improving the great city of Pittsburgh! This opportunity is one they won't want to miss!
