The East/West Project


Do you live in eastern Allegheny County? Do you want the high-quality, affordable career training offered at the West Hills Center – but getting there is impossible for you? The East/West Project is a special opportunity designed to help you prepare for the high-demand job you want.

East/West offers a package of supports that will help you succeed:

  • Career Advice to help you enroll and make decisions about your future.
  • Local Classes in your own neighborhood for non-lab courses, including individual tutoring.
  • Transportation to the West Hills Center for technical lab classes.
  • A Computer Account to manage all your classes online, with support from a computer lab tutor.
  • A Coach to help you succeed.
  • Job Search and Internship direction and support.

An important part of East/West is being part of a team that works together to win. You will be part of a group that studies together and finishes together (a “cohort”). You will meet your team members at the beginning of the program.

Classes start the third week of September, so there is still time to register. Call right away to get started.

Want to visit the Technology Classrooms at the West Hills Center?
