A 12-member task force has been assembled by Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto with a goal of expanding job opportunities for the city’s high schoolers.
Specifically, the group has been tasked with overhauling the Summer Youth Employment Program. Last year the program employed more than 300 residents between the ages of 14 and 21.
Stefani Pashman, chief executive officer of the Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board, is among the members. She said although the program is strong, it has plenty of room for growth.
