With the help of our friends at PNC Bank who generously donated their fabulous corporate box, a full catered lunch and a huge cake; on July 2nd, SCA TRRO staff took an afternoon at the ball park to celebrate with 20 SCA TRRO program participants who earned their High School diplomas this year. Pictured serving cake are Reese McArdle and Nick Williams, both CLC Trailblazers and graduates of Woodland Hills High School. Congrats TRRO grads!! Well done! Thank you PNC Bank for the wonderful day at PNC Park!

At SCA's Three Rivers Regional Office, the Pittsburgh Green Jobs Corps (GJC) is creating a serious buzz. A product of the partnership between SCA and local social enterprise GTECH, which utilizes green strategies to empower communities and reclaim vacant land, the GJC is an innovative method of connecting the green jobs popping up all over the region with youth most in need of career opportunities.
