Learning is everywhere. Now you can find it all in one place.

Pittsburgh City of Learning is bringing together dozens of organizations including Pittsburgh Public Schools Summer Dreamers Academy, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Learn and Earn Summer Youth Employment Program, and others to offer many free and affordable learning opportunities to young people throughout greater Pittsburgh.

Through Pittsburgh City of Learning, organizations offering summer learning programs will issue digital badges to recognize student accomplishments, like the knowledge they gain, the skills they develop, and the positive habits they exhibit.

Launching in June 2015, the pghcityoflearning.org online platform will provide a single, searchable website that makes a wide variety of learning opportunities easily accessible to young people and their families.
