KIDSBURGH: DESTINATION MILLVALE
Kidsburgh is both a concept and an online resource.
As an idea (and community initiative), it’s an all-out push by a large and collaborative group in Pittsburgh–from parents to educators to anyone working with kids or on kids’ issues– to make Pittsburgh the best place to raise kids on the planet. (That’s why we call it Kidsburgh.)
