Holiday Party & Annual Meeting
Please join us for the last AFP Education Program of 2016, on December 8, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, which promises to be a wonderful informal evening of celebration and inspiration.
Saleem Ghubril, our aspirational speaker, will talk about his career path, his role as the Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Promise, and its impact on our youth and our community.
Saleem Ghubril is a committed and passionate advocate for children and for the City of Pittsburgh. An ordained Presbyterian minister, he has devoted his life to serving the people of his community through outreach and education programs.
In 1985, Saleem founded The Pittsburgh Project, a community development organization that annually provides free home renovations to hundreds of vulnerable seniors, and mentors, educates, and deploys thousands of volunteer youth in meaningful community service initiatives. Saleem led The Pittsburgh Project until 2008, when he assumed the leadership of The Pittsburgh Promise.
The Pittsburgh Promise is a regional economic and workforce development entity that focuses on transforming the quality of education and life in the City of Pittsburgh, and making higher education a reality for all of Pittsburgh’s urban youth.
He is currently the volunteer pastor of the Mosaic Community Church in Pittsburgh. He also serves on the boards of The Buhl Foundation, Vibrant Pittsburgh, and the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh.
After his presentation, Saleem will join us to share in some holiday spirits.
