The Lighthouse Project at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA is a beacon of youth-centered, relevant, engaging, equitable learning here in the City of Pittsburgh. Now part of a creative learning hub in Homewood, long-time youth participant and mentor, Tyree Allie joins the Lighthouse Project founder and Director of Creative Youth Development James Brown in conversation with Jason Swanson of KnowledgeWorks.

Together, we’ll explore:

  • What will young people need so that they will flourish in a future of unknown possibilities?
  • Why thinking about transformative futures can be difficult
  • The promise and pitfalls of virtual learning
  • What it will mean to be youth-centered in the future in light of the global events of 2020

This conversation will be live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube. RSVP to the Facebook event to receive an update when we go live!

This conversation is part of a series of episodes as part of “Tomorrow.” We’ll be streaming live with folks of all ages from across the globe every Thursday. Learn more at
