Malcolm Thomas, director of Neighborhood Learning Alliance’s “Reaching Back” male mentoring program, and Jason Rivers, Pittsburgh Public Schools’ “We Promise” project manager, addressed a group of 25 juniors at UPrep yesterday to introduce an SAT class. Participating students will receive rigorous SAT training, complemented by culturally appropriate mentoring and support. The class is a partnership between Pittsburgh Public Schools, NLA, the Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation, Pittsburgh Prep, and the University of Pittsburgh.
