Google, University of Pittsburgh, and Community Partners Co-Present Kids Without Borders
Free Activities, Resources, and Programs to Inspire and Connect Youth and Families
Kids Without Borders is a family-friendly day designed to connect youth from all backgrounds to positive forms of expression – from a slam poetry exercise to a teen photography workshop to an anti-bullying session. Parents can enjoy family yoga, Know Your Rights workshop for immigrants and refugees, and a session for all on how to combat bullying. There are activities for youth of all ages and families. The program takes place on Sunday, January 29th and runs from 11AM to 4PM at Alphabet City Center in the Northside. It is free and open to the public.
“We believe that the best type of community-building and cross-cultural dialogue happens when we create spaces for people to come together under one roof for a shared experience,” says City of Asylum Assistant Silvia Duarte. Kids Without Borders will take place at City of Asylum’s newly unveiled Alphabet City Center which is located at 40 W. North Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15212. Alphabet City Center is a home for diverse voices from around the globe—a place where Pittsburgh meets the world and the world meets Pittsburgh.
“We know that diversity can make us better. It leads to more productive teams, helps to build better products, and in this case, fosters stronger community. We’re proud to support efforts that reinforce this message to the youth of our city,” says Head of Public Affairs for Google Pittsburgh Liz Schwab.
