  1. Good morning,

    My wife and I will be in the Pittsburgh area for 3-4 weeks this summer during the month of July. I am a teacher in the DC area and would like to know if the Braddock Youth Project might consider hiring a teacher to teach life skills or computer/typing skills to Braddock youth and/or parents of Braddock youth.

    I am a Special Education teacher and would love to help any way I can. Please do not hesitate to contact me on my cell phone at 724-422-3339. I look forward to speaking with you regarding the summer.

    • want to know if there is any opportunity to have a juglne/dubstepp set on a weekday night if possible, dj live-o, dj endz, mc nickle-b, mc trixx, plus more, would really apprecciate your responz on this as sounds like its something your missing all bristol based mcs and djs.
