Walking Tours, Architectural Design Challenges, and Poetry & Art
Since the beginning of this 2015-16 school year, PHLF has offered 40 educational programs to various schools in Allegheny, Westmoreland, and Beaver counties. Through walking tours, architectural design challenges, Poetry and Art workshops, and other activities, PHLF staff and docents connect the built environment to classroom curriculum, making it relevant, meaningful, and engaging to students from pre-school through graduate school. Below is a photo gallery of several recent programs.
PHLF is grateful to BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania, The Anne L. & George H. Clapp Charitable and Educational Trust, the Cindy & Murry Gerber Foundation, McSwigan Family Foundation, and Alfred M. Oppenheimer Memorial Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation for contributing to its place-based educational programs that foster career awareness and help young people develop a sense of well-being as they explore and learn about the Pittsburgh region’s significant history and architecture.
