As most of you know, New Century Careers offers training for machinists and continues to offer this training tuition-free. In addition to our South Side location, New Century Careers is now offering machinist training in McKeesport at Tube City Center (formerly the Daily News). This will be the 'quick train' portion of our machinist training and will be a 5 week, 125 hour program.
After the 5 week training period, trainees can choose to continue their machinist training at our South Side location OR go through some career readiness training and be placed with a local manufacturing company.
As the school year is coming to an end, especially for those students who have not chosen a career path as yet, please share and pass along this information. The demand is high for trained machinists and now there is training in the Mon Valley! Let me know if you have any questions.

As another school year is coming to a close, I wanted to reach out one last time to inform you about the PITT Success PELL Match Program that was announced in February. The bottom line is that any Pell-eligible student attending any of the PITT campuses will have their federal Pell Grant matched dollar for dollar by the University of Pittsburgh. That’s up to $6,195 in matching grant money, nearly the cost of a semester’s tuition. Here at Greensburg we think that’s a pretty good deal! We want to do everything possible to inform your college bound students about this unprecedented effort to make college education affordable for many. The goal is to reduce the amount of debt students incur while pursuing a world class education. Please reach out to me or any of our admissions counselors to further discuss.
Here's a flyer with some more information: Pitt-Greensburg_NewGrantMoney.pdf
Enjoy the summer and Hail to Pitt!

We are not just painting contractors, we are craftsman.

Now, his legacy of exceptional fine-quality craftsmanship is carried on by his son, Lucas. The company values of providing superior quality work and service lives on. Markantone Painting is considered one of the top painting contractors in the Pittsburgh area and is well-known for paying close attention to detail, proper surface preparation, and delivering superior results.

Help us create a Baldwin lead project with goal of creating awareness for mental health and providing support for other students. We are working to compile students' writings in a booklet available through guidance, teachers, and online. There is often a stigma around mental health and mental illness, so it is important to create a dialogue and normalize conversation about its importance. Your submission may be a personal story of overcoming adversity relating to mental health or mental illness, encouragement and inspiration for students, tips or advice on coping with stress, school, mental health/illness, etc, or simply a quote you find meaningful or helpful. Please keep responses school appropriate and be sensitive to the topic at hand, and keep any personal stories centered around overcoming obstacles and not details about the struggle itself. Anything inappropriate, potentially triggering, or too detailed will not be published.
This is not a resource for help, as responses are anonymous. If you are currently struggling and need help, reach out to a guidance counselor or other trusted person in your life. If you are in a crisis, text HOME to 741741 to reach crisis text line or call RESOLVE Crisis at 888-796-8226
