JA's Pittsburgh: Your Bridge to Opportunity

Pittsburgh: Your Bridge to Opportunity, a 6 minute video highlighting the careers in our region and why young people should make Pittsburgh their home.  Join Max and Alex as they explore several of the high growth, high demand careers and industries cited in the Inflection Point study including: Information Technology; Business and Finance; Engineering, Science and Production; Health Care; Construction; Energy; and Retail and Hospitality. 

About the Program:

Students explore how to use life experiences to develop work skills and how to map a path to employment goals. The students will be able to identify work skills already developed from experiences and activities and plan significant markers they need to reach in order to earn a particular job.
