NEED Program for College-Bound Black Students in Pittsburgh Looks to Expand

Since 1963 the Negro Educational Emergency Drive (NEED) program has helped 17,000 college-bound African-American students in Pittsburgh with scholarships, counseling, mentoring, and internships. Now the organizers of the NEED program want to expand their efforts to include students at charter schools and at suburban high schools with large numbers of black students. The organization is attempting to raise $7.5 million to fund this year’s programs.
