Global Minds Pittsburgh Conference

Peyton Klein and educator Jenn McGonagle focused on building welcoming and inclusive communities through Global Minds, a nonprofit founded by Peyton in 2016. Their goal is to make Pittsburgh a more accepting and understanding community by supporting immigrant students as they reach their greatest academic and social potential. They planned to spearhead two key events in March. The first is a conference that will bring Global Minds student leaders from seven area high schools to engage in community building, leadership training and educational activities. The second, includes over 200 youth from across Pittsburgh who will participate at the Youth@theBigTable event in partnership with Pittsburgh Leadership Inc., bringing community leaders to discuss various issues specific to their community with youth leaders over a shared meal. Due to COVID, their second event had to be cancelled.
