Hive Fund for Connected Learning

The Hive Fund for Connected Learning supports connected learning experiences in the Greater Pittsburgh region that help prepare tweens, teens, and young adults for college, the workforce, and civic participation. Connected learning is a framework that re-imagines the learning experiences of young people—connecting the 3 spheres of life that matter most to them—their peer culture, their interests, and their academics.

Hive funding supports connected learning experiences in the greater Pittsburgh region that help prepare tweens, teens, and young adults for college, the workforce, and civic participation. Grants are available up to $15,000. Eligible projects primarily target youth older than age 10.
