PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Off days are precious during an NFL season, especially so coming off a couple of losses. Steelers tailback Najee Harris spent his off-day morning working help some local East Liberty students.
Pittsburgh Public Schools is partnering with the City of Pittsburgh and local businesses on a work-study program called “Prepare to Prosper” that will expand opportunities for all students, not just those planning to attend traditional four-year colleges and universities. It’s a great sign of cooperation between the district and the city, and a big step toward building a more inclusive regional economy.
