Career Day at the Neighborhood Academy

16 Jul 2021

This week, i4Kids partnered with the Neighborhood Academy and invited a variety of healthcare and research professionals to speak for career day. The Neighborhood Academy is a private, college preparatory high school and middle school for grades 6-12 in Pittsburgh, PA. 100% of their senior students are accepted into college. We appreciate our career day speakers for taking time out of their busy schedule to share their inspiring stories and valuable career advice with the students. We are looking forward to creating more opportunities for students through our continued partnership with the Neighborhood Academy. 


Thank you again to our speakers and the Neighborhood Academy!
