July 23rd, 2021

Three very different educational institutions are coming together this fall to develop an innovative career readiness program for Pittsburgh-area elementary school students, thanks to a generous $250,000 grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation. The Foundation has awarded the grant to MicroSociety Inc. (MSI), a Philadelphia education nonprofit, for a digital project with Penn Hills Charter School of Entrepreneurship (PHCSE) that will help prepare students in grades K-5 for the high-tech, high-skill workplace of the future through online society-building and mentorship by adult professionals. As part of the project, students majoring in entrepreneurship at Duquesne University’s Palumbo-Donahue School of Business will also mentor PHCSE students.
