Allegheny Street Bridge Project

The Allegheny Street Bridge Project is all about teens. The primary thrusts of our Allegheny Street Bridge Project Teen Initiative at this time are Free Memberships, 326 Program, Youth Job Service and our NEW Digital Photo Lab. Teens today are faced with challenges unlike at any other time in our history and the Y intends to partner with our teens and their families to assist in the navigation of their path to adulthood and citizenship.

DIGITAL PHOTO LAB

Photography is no longer your grandparents method of keeping memories. Digital photography and software editing has opened this artwork beyond all previous imagination. This program will teach the skills, show the tricks and provide you with a better understanding and appreciation of a “good picture.”  Our program will provide cameras and a computer with photo editing software, courtesy of the Best Buy Foundation Grant Program. You may bring your own camera to use as well.
