March-April Justice Partner is NEED  

NEED is a nonprofit college access program which is a lifeline to many young people who otherwise would not have had the guidance and resources to gain invaluable life skills, pursue higher education, and embark on a brighter future by obtaining financially successful careers.

NEED’s vision is to be a catalyst for change that transforms the outcomes of underserved youth in the Greater Pittsburgh area by developing college bound, civic-minded leaders. NEED directs them on the right path through enrichment programs, mentorship, career development, educational trips, scholarship assistance, and socially impactful activities. They are determined to eradicate the factors that lead to systemic poverty by creating safe learning environments and by giving them every tool to succeed. Together with the support of families, churches, alumni, corporations, and in-kind donations, NEED is investing in youth to ensure the growth, longevity, sustainability of our future and the strengthening of our Pittsburgh region’s economy.
