Youth Main Street Advisors Program

The Youth Main Street Advisors Program is a service learning project that connects students with communities through the creation of a student-produced book about the community's history, present, and future. Building upon YPA's successful video pilot program in 2007, the Youth Main Street Advisors Program inspires students to get involved in their communities, builds students' academic and career skills, and enables students to meet their graduation requirements. Based on local success, YPA plans to expand the Youth Main Street Advisors Program statewide, regionally, and nationally that injects new ideas to revitalize local communities. The program is also designed to be sustainable. YPA projects that at the end of year six, the Youth Main Street Advisors Program will be in 200 schools, produce 40,000 books, and impact 4,000 students while generating $54,486 in net income for the organization. If projections are accurate, after year five, YPA will have achieved a 64% sustainability ratio, with only 36% coming from contributed income.

The Preserve Pittsburgh Summit is an interactive, collaborative workshop on historic preservation for young people to help shape the outcome of historic sites. The event includes lunch, a bus tour of the historic sites, and a keynote address by a noted expert in the field. That evening, YPA hosts a reception where it recognizes winners of its Preservation Video Contest and awards the Promise Award to an emerging preservationist. The objective of the Preserve Pittsburgh Summit is to develop a model framework for how young people can shape the future of historic sites in their community by using real life examples in Pittsburgh, such as the New Granada Theatre, August Wilson House, Garden Theater, and National Negro Opera Company first home. The event is ideally suited for high school and college students, who can earn academic credit for attending and participating. The Summit is open to people of all ages with an interest in engaging the next generation in historic preservation.

YPA is the only organization in the region that celebrates National Historic Preservation Month during May. At the event, YPA unveils its annual list of the Top Ten Best Preservation Opportunities in the Pittsburgh Area, a list of endangered historic sites with good prospects for renovation and reuse. The event is held in a unique, historic space, which allows preservationists an opportunity to exchange ideas, network, and celebrate preservation accomplishments during National Historic Preservation Month. National, statewide, and local preservation leaders, elected officials, and sponsors will speak at the event. It's a fun way to engage preservationists and cultivate a new audience of preservation leaders.
