The students got a crash course in the electricity that powers their homes and what it takes to provide it, as well as the types of electrical careers that are available without a college degree. Contractors and engineers were on hand to help the students understand what it takes to power the world. Eaton's PSEC facility is truly world-class.

See the highlights of their visit in the video below.

About Mentorship Academy

The Mentorship Academy is an initiative of CNX Foundation and part of CNX’s commitment to investing in its local community. Designed for high school students who do not plan to immediately attend a four-year college, the Academy is focused on providing urban and rural youth from economically disadvantaged communities with greater opportunities—helping provide these young adults a bridge to family-sustaining careers. Following the mentorship program, students will have developed new relationships with peers and business leaders across western Pennsylvania, a new excitement for the region’s career opportunities and an understanding of how to pursue those careers.

Founding Academy partners include CNX Resources, The Bus Stops Here Foundation, and the Builders Guild of Western Pennsylvania. Additional partners will be added as the Academy progresses.
