Pittsburgh Assistance Center for Educators and Students
PACES believes students of all ages benefit by connecting to the community. We strive to assist teachers in forming such connections by providing quality outreach programs at no cost. This August, we again provided a workshop for students and counselors attending the Pittsburgh Refugee Youth Summer Enrichment Academy (PRYSE). (Read about our 2014 workshops >>) This camp is run by undergraduate students from Pitt and CMU and is for students between ages 12 and 16. PRYSE campers come from different refugee populations, including Bhutanese, Somali-Bantu, Congolese, and Uzbek.
This year's workshop focused on fire safety and how to respond during emergency situations. Our objective was to communicate to students the importance of practicing and preparing for emergencies and ways they can protect themselves.
PACES thanks the three professionals and community leaders who helped lead the workshop:
PRYSE is run by an all-volunteer staff of undergraduate students from Pitt and CMU. PACES thanks PRYSE for their hard work and commitment to the education of Pittsburgh's youth refugee population. It was an honor for us to work with PRYSE for a second year! We enjoyed seeing some familiar faces and making new friends with these wonderful, energetic, and talented students!
