Thrive Advisory Board

Literacy Pittsburgh continues to grow and evolve in exciting ways – and always with an eye toward the future. Fresh ideas and innovative approaches from the next generation of literacy leaders is critical to our long-term success. To that end, our Board of Directors has established Thrive, a young professionals advisory board.

Thrive board members are a valued resource and are vital to the fulfillment of our mission to build better lives through learning. Members interact with our Board of Directors, staff and students, and provide fundraising, networking, volunteering, and community advocacy to help promote Literacy Pittsburgh’s goals and programs.

Thrive provides an opportunity for young professionals to develop as leaders and collaborate with others who share a passion for improving lives through adult education and family literacy.
