The College and Career Readiness Program (CCRP) guides low-income high school juniors & seniors in completing their education and preparing plans for their years beyond high school. 

The CCRP supports students as they work to meet graduation requirements, helps navigate post-secondary education choices, and provides assistance with the financial aid process.

Each student is placed with a CCRP Coordinator, who offers guidance on college and career decisions – completing financial aid forms like the FAFSA  and PHEAA, getting ready for the Pittsburgh Promise, and applying for other scholarships! SAT, ACT and other exam preparation are available as well.

Students also have the opportunity to be placed in a paid internship to explore areas of interest and career options with organizations like West Penn Hospital, the YMCA Lighthouse Project, Capsen Robotics, and many more! University, college, and trade school tours are also scheduled in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas based on student interests.

Graduate high school with a vision!

The Learn & Earn Summer Youth Employment Program seeks to find meaningful employment experiences for low-income youths (ages 14-21) in Garfield and the surrounding neighborhoods.

Between the months of June and August, the six-week program provides each participant with up to 25 hours of work per week. Youths involved in the program gain invaluable work experience and develop a variety of soft skills that will be critical to improving their college and career readiness. The Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation serves as an application support center and provider for the Learn & Earn program, an initiative made possible through a partnership amongst Allegheny County, the city of Pittsburgh, and Partner4Work.

If you are interested in applying for the program, call or email our Youth Programs Coordinators.
