Our Success Story
25 Carrick Ave Project hosted a 2 - week intensive summer camp for 12 youth in August 2019. Hearcorp employed 4 of those youth, hosting over 10 community events and live performances.
25 Carrick Ave Project developed a multi-tiered youth workforce program for the Carrick/ Hilltop neighborhoods with an emphasis on training and employing youth ages 15-21 in the Event/Entertainment Technology trade. These programs not only provide technical skills but also culminate in a final project demonstrating skills leading to employment in the Event/Technology Industry.
25 Carrick Ave Project with funding from The Forbes Fund and in conjunction with City of Pittsburgh Parks Department, and Carrick Community Council has developed a plan to deliver the 16 -session afterschool program to youth in the Carrick area during the 2020/2021 school year.

Tech 25 has also hosted summer Apprenticeships for youth and adults that created an entry point in a highly competitive and highly technical industry. This summer we employed 15 trainees for our Live Sound 1 Apprentice Program. These students got hands on experience helping to produce a live concert series.
