USW Next Gen: A Promise Kept

When a group of Next Geners were asked to repair crumbling basketball hoops at a Pittsburgh area school, they quickly realized the hoops were beyond repair.

On June 6, 2017, the USW in partnership with Variety the Children’s Charity and their “My Voice” program presented two Steelworker families with high-tech devices that will help their children express themselves.
