Hi! I'm Shayna. I was recently hired onto the Neighborhood Learning Alliance team as the Community LEARNS Curriculum Developer. That means I work on developing middle school curriculum for the Community LEARNS program. Although I'm new, I love the collaborative environment in the office and the impact that this organization makes. Fun fact: My coworkers might be surprised to know that I am an improvisational comedian and balloon artist!
Pittsburgh CONNECTS Project Coordinator
I worked with different technologies in education for many years before joining NLA last year. Now my focus as the Coordinator of the Pittsburgh CONNECTS project is to get the latest technology tools into the hands of all our neighbors, especially those who haven’t yet mastered the use of the Internet. Many people just don't have a good working computer or fast Internet at home. I especially like that our technology centers are multigenerational, rather free-form, and fun. We have a surprisingly rich set of tools for folks to learn and master if they want. Call them toys or tools, it's all the same to me. I call it connecting to the world around you.
Reaching Back Male Mentoring and Manhood Development Program Director
Hi! I'm Malcolm Thomas. I am the Project Director for the Reaching Back Male Mentoring and Manhood Development Program. I have been with the organization for 2 years work on Reaching Back and the Summer Dreamers "Checkmate!" chess program. I bring interest and skills in training, health and wellness to the organization. I like working with Neighborhood Learning Alliance because it gives me the opportunity to make an impact with inner city youth through Rites of Passage and chess. It also affords me the opportunity to work with other dynamic mentors and professionals.

Hi! I handle organizing and advertising professional development opportunities offered through Neighborhood Learning Alliance.
