Promise for the Future: Reducing Teen Violence and Enhancing Life Opportunities

On Saturday May 10, 2008, Pittsburgh Peabody High School along with over 40 East End Service Providers will host a community event for students, families and the community residents of the East End.

The organizers want to help residents, students and families:

  • connect with existing East End resources to help them address their most pressing needs for training and employment, mental and physical health, housing, financial literacy, conflict resolution, violence and gang prevention;
  • learn about Pittsburgh Peabody and begin to alter their “unsafe” perception of the school;
  • recognize the need to work together as a community to improve student achievement and decrease violence in the neighbhorhoods of the East End; and
  • gain knowledge of The Pittsburgh Promise and learn how Pittsburgh Public School students can benefit from the program regardless of their family income.
