Pittsburgh is the first U.S. city to have been selected for an international spotlight on education innovation by renowned global non-profit HundrED, and Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild is one of twelve organizations chosen to represent the high concentration of creative educational opportunities in Pittsburgh.
“As a region known for its dedication to children, we should all be extraordinarily excited about the HundrED Spotlight and the story that it tells about the Pittsburgh region’s broader, decade-long effort to remake learning,” said Gregg Behr, executive director of The Grable Foundation, a local partner in the HundrED Spotlight, and a founder of the Remake Learning network, whose signature hands-on learning festival spread to nine U.S. regions this spring. “Not only will HundrED feature these 12 innovations, but we’re also going to put a spotlight on all 82 innovations as they all contribute great value to our incredible community that, together, is showing what’s possible when we put youth and their futures at the heart of everything we do.”
MCG will be featured on HundrED’s global platform HundrED.org, highlighted in a comprehensive report of education innovation in the Pittsburgh region, and featured in a case study video that will be available on our website this fall.
