“Creating Hope Through Learning”
Since the death of my mother, I have made a decision to remain in Pittsburgh. While here I’ve begun to exercise my muscles as an investor in the growth and development of people in my home city. One organization I have partnered with is the Homeless Children’s Education Fund (HCEF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1999 to support the educational needs of children experiencing homelessness in Allegheny County. Over the years, the role of HCEF in the community has developed and expanded to meet these needs.
So, my first major project in my home city is a mentoring workshop designed to expand the role of academic tutors to include the underlying principles of “Everyday Mentoring”. I am working with an incredible development team and will be facilitating a Tutor Mentoring Workshop on Saturday December 9.
