The Ryan Arts Center is proud to host the Partner4Work summer Learn and Earn program. There are 2 parts to Learn and Earn 1) Application Site 2) Worksite Provider. We are both!




If you are a student and looking to register, Learn and Earn applications are online at the Partner4Work website. We can assist you in the registration process during normal business hours. 




We are looking for job placement for local youth in the McKees Rocks and surrounding areas. For many of the students participating in learn and earn this is their first job. We are looking for sites that are flexible and willing to help train students. Work weeks are June 25- Aug 3rd.
