School 2 Career

Future CEOs can click HERE to apply online or HERE to download the paper application

OPDC's School 2 Career youth program breaks the cycle of poverty by preparing at-risk youth for college and career success. We give high schoolers academic support and paid internship opportunities with employers across the city. 100% of our students graduate from high school, get into college, and are Pittsburgh Promise eligible.

Our program operates year-round, beginning with a paid summer orientation that runs from 10am-3:30pm Monday through Thursday. During the school year, students receive free tutoring, paid internships, Microsoft Office 2016 training and certification, SAT preparation, and help applying to college. The school year schedule runs from 3pm-6pm Monday through Friday.

School 2 Career is where CEOs (Career Exploration Officers) begin their journey. Our students explore college and career opportunities. They experience and develop new skills and connect with professionals while expanding their college and career options. 

School 2 Career students receive exclusive access to scholarship opportunities.
