From Perry North / Observatory Hill, Ebony Harris hosted interactive workshops that challenged participants to delve deeper into the overall vision of their lives through and create a blueprint for improving their lives and communities. Free two-day workshops were offered at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh- Woods Run, followed by panel discussions and networking mixer events focusing on entrepreneurial journeys and self-investment. Nearly 30 community members from Observatory Hill participated and learned valuable lessons in reaching and sustaining self-sufficiency, accomplishing goals such as homeownership, entrepreneurship, and making career advancements.
“Every workshop participant experienced the benefits of meeting with others and being inspired to propel their purpose in life,” said project leader Ebony McQueen Harris. “As a result of the support participants felt from each other, several were inspired to launch their own small businesses or re-activate their education.”
