Our Mission

To ensure at-risk students from Pittsburgh’s urban core have the support to graduate from high school prepared to pursue a career and post secondary education. We accomplish this goal through collaboration with the family, the school, employers and the community. We provide one-on-one mentoring, job development and career exploration, while teaching the students important virtues such as dependability, accountability and responsibility.

OPDC’s School 2 Career youth program is supported by McAuley Ministries, the grantmaking arm of the Pittsburgh Mercy Health System, and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Neighborhood Assistance Tax Credit Program with investment from Dollar Bank, PNC Bank, and UPMC Health Plan.
