Through a special initiative of Remake Learning Days and support from The Heinz Endowments, we have partnerships with nonprofit organizations in Hazelwood, Homewood and Hill District. These organizations assist in making sure fun and engaging learning events are available in these neighborhoods as well as encourage families (from all areas of Pittsburgh) to explore these neighborhoods.
We would also like to thank the following organizations for serving as our neighborhood community partners.
The mission of the Homewood Children’s Village is to improve the lives of Homewood children and to simultaneously reweave the fabric of the community in which they live. We focus on tearing down barriers to success by increasing access to opportunities and supporting youth through the impact of challenges. We have chosen education as our key lever to move the community from poverty to possibility. At the hub of our offerings is a Full Service Community School model where our school site managers play a pivotal role in convening school staff, contract providers, volunteers, and resources to provide holistic support for students to meet all their developmental needs.
Allegheny Partners for Out-of-School Time (APOST)is a partnership of funders, intermediaries and providers dedicated to building a quality Out-of-School Time (OST) System that will contribute to the healthy successful development of young people as they progress through their school years, graduate from high school and enter into adulthood.

Founded in 2002 by Tim Smith, Center of Life (COL) stands with the people of Hazelwood as they strive to be strong and to make their community strong. With its roots planted deeply in the community and supported by extraordinary partners, Center of Life serves Hazelwood and its surrounding communities with rich academic out-of-school programs and outstanding experiences in music and arts. Center of Life employs a holistic approach to community through all of its programs, believing that commitment to others is most productive when you walk with those served in their schools, homes and families.
