Eight years ago, Propel started as a dream. The dream was to build an organization with the capacity to transform public education in Southwestern Pennsylvania so that all children have access to high performing public schools. Today, that dream is a reality.
Propel’s mission is to catalyze the transformation of public education in Southwestern Pennsylvania so that all children have access to high performing public schools.
