PROGRAM SITE

Pittsburgh LT takes place in Pittsburgh, PA. Pittsburgh is routinely voted one of the best places to live for young professionals. It has a unique blend of culturally rich activities to go along with thriving food, sports, and outdoor scenes. This further enhances the goal of Pittsburgh LT, as it’s also a great place to engage with young professionals as a workplace missionary. 


EMPLOYMENT

Acceptance as an intern or employee at an organization in or around Pittsburghis mandatory for participation in the Pittsburgh LT program. An internship through Reliant with the LT program is also allowed. Involuntary termination or being fired from employment while at LT would result in the immediate dismissal from the LT program. (recommended max commute is one hour, participants are encouraged to apply to organizations within the city)


HOUSING

The LT director will set up participant housing through subleases and/or housing with families who are part of the local h2o church-Pittsburgh. Rent will vary by location, expect to pay no more than $450/month for housing. Participants are encouraged to actively engage with the Directors in the process of finding housing so preferences on rent amount, housing location, and housing situation can be known. Rent is not included in the LT fees and will be an additional cost. 


TRANSPORTATION

Transportation to and during Pittsburgh LT is up to the participant. Some of our campus staff are able to assist with arranging carpools to sessions. Transportation is also essential in getting to and from internships. Having your own transportation during Pittsburgh LT is convenient but it is not a requirement. Bus lines are also well established within Pittsburgh city limits.


GENERAL GUIDELINES

Pittsburgh LT participants are expected to be a good testimony for Christ all summer on the job, in our housing, during free time and at program events. Full participation in all LT events is required. Involuntary termination or being fired from employment while at LT would result in the immediate dismissal from the LT program.
