There are 23 historic religious structures in Wilkinsburg, in only 2.4 square miles. The architecture is amazing. I'm excited to be collaborating with Preservation Pittsburgh to document them. Keep an eye out for an upcoming photo contest.

Wilkinsburg Youth Project

Wilkinsburg Youth Project

During my summer connections for Come Over, Come Eat, Come Play, I have enjoyed meeting the energetic young people in the Wilkinsburg Youth Project.


The Wilkinsburg Youth Project is a sister program of the Braddock Youth Project. They have college-aged leaders from around the country training WYP high-school aged workers and leaders. The students are being paid to learn and do community service projects this summer in three areas: Mentoring, Gardening, and Media Arts.

WYP breakfast

Most of these students grew up in Wilkinsburg and attend a variety of schools, from Westinghouse High School to charter schools. They have ambitions of going to college and working in business. I was glad to learn that a majority of them prefer real-time learning and “doing things.” They do not solely love social media and computer work - they want to be active in their bodies and in their communities.


WYP Mentoring Group

Their mentoring team is looking for partnerships throughout the Wilkinsburg community. They hope to engage with kids ages 5-13, so if you know of a non-profit organization who is in need of some extra hands, please reach out to Brendan Renee and Meredythe Kimmel at wilkinsburgyouthproject@gmail.com. Their summer job program ends on August 4th, but the school year program will be up and running in October, so keep their media and gardening teams in mind, too, for projects throughout the community.


And local businesses in Wilkinsburg can hire a pre-screened intern from this group. Help engage our future.


How big we are
