The Turn Around Agenda serves our community school, Pittsburgh Faison K-5, by nurturing a wholesome educational environment with committed volunteers. The program recruits in-school volunteers who provide supportive services like tutoring, reading support and other duties. The program also secures needed resources to fulfill unmet classroom needs such as dictionaries and alarm clocks for each family. The purpose of the Turn Around Agenda is to see that every student maximizes their potential for learning. The Turn-Around Agenda not only supports our community school children, but gathers adults together to learn something new and to have fun. One of those events was “What’s cookin’?” This cooking class demonstrated the preparation of party food. Chef Carmen, her mother, Minerva and her Aunt Marsha made it a family affair.
