The Guyasuta Fellowship program is back for its 5Th campaign. The program is a policy forum where young people can work together to craft a white paper on a specific issue that will be presented to Pittsburgh City Council members at a post agenda meeting. The issue that the fellowship will be working on this year is the transition to a "green" economy and how Pittsburgh can work to help the city's disadvantaged and under served communities while building a more sustainable region. The program is trying to involve young people in participating in civic discourse and asks that you be a resident of the region with plans to remain for anywhere between two to five years and that you miss no less than two bimonthly meetings. The program was initiated in 2002 but was not active in 2007 and 2008.
