THE STORY:

Summertime, meet The LAB!

We'll use the $$ to hire a Full Time Coro Fellow for 1 month to develop the structure, programming, and partnerships for our summer activities. We want to stay engaged with our neighbors when school’s out since 1) we really like them, and 2) studies show that low-income students lose about 3 months of grade-level proficiency over the summer.

As a volunteer-based organization, the extra capacity provided by the Coro Fellow will have invaluable outcomes for LAB experiments and participants.

Literary Arts Boom [The LAB] is an explosively fun creative writing laboratory in Garfield that offers free out-of-school programming to Pittsburgh youth, ages 6-18. Students practice and improve their inquiry and writing skills in a safe and unique space by participating in project-based workshops that incorporate art, technology, and communication. The Mad Scientist theme encourages youth to explore, experiment, and invent. Mentorship and creativity inspire students to pursue their interests, find their voices, and tell their stories.
