We're in the midst of setting up college tours for our youth! Before we confirm dates and schedules, we'd like to get some feedback from you all! On our prospective visit list is Point Park University, University of Pittsburgh, and Empire Beauty School. Are these schools that you think your youth would be interested in, or that you're interested in for them? We want to tailor these to be the best opportunities possible, so if there's a specific school in Pennsylvania that you think would be good, please let us know! We'll reach out and see if we can schedule a tour with them! Interact with this post if you like the prospective schools listed! ... See MoreSee Less
