Across the region, businesses report a lack of skilled workers. At Literacy Pittsburgh, we not only help students achieve their academic goals, we empower them to develop the skills necessary to advance in an ever-evolving job market. Literacy Pittsburgh students leave qualified for high-demand jobs, allowing them to pursue a living wage while combating the worker shortage.

Investments from corporations make a significant impact on the services we offer.  In addition to unrestricted support of Literacy Pittsburgh students and programs, below are just a few ways your corporation can invest in Literacy Pittsburgh.
