Brashear can help teens apply for city Learn and Earn Program


This summer, 2,000 summer jobs are projected for young people, 14 to 21, through the Learn and Earn Summer Youth Employment Program offered by the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County.

To help teens from South Pittsburgh apply for these jobs, the family services team of The Brashear Association is offering support and guidance.

Applications for the Learn and Earn program are available at three Brashear sites: Brashear Center, 2005 Sarah Street, South Side; the Brashear Hilltop office at the Hilltop YMCA, 500 Brownsville Road, Mt. Oliver; and the Brashear Neighborhood Employment Center, 730 East Warrington Avenue, Allentown. Staff will help job candidates complete the application and will review all documentation required.

This year, adolescents who reside in Mt. Oliver Borough are also eligible to apply. South Pittsburgh applicants can drop off applications at the Goodwill Building at 2400 East Carson Street or at many other locations as listed on the City of Pittsburgh website, The deadline for applications is April 30.

According to Tracy Frank, Brashear’s Family Services Coordinator, “Although these jobs are filled by lottery, teens must apply to get in the game. Adolescents from South Pittsburgh have been underrepresented in past years and we’d like to change that this year. So, parents and students should be aware of the program and apply as soon as possible.”
