About Us

Welcome to Kidsburgh, your go-to online resource focusing on the people and ideas making Pittsburgh a better place to raise kids. With original stories by Kidsburgh and our two media partners, NEXTpittsburgh and KDKA TV, you’ll find hundreds of feature and news stories about everything from creative learning and  health, to advocacy on a wide range of issues, to guides for fun things to do in Pittsburgh. To help with the many choices, Kidsburgh.org also features a robust calendar that lists kid-friendly events throughout the region and a directory of child-serving organizations.

Our Vision

In the beginning, a group of community leaders, child advocates and educators in Pittsburgh had a big dream, that the Pittsburgh region could be the best place on earth to raise a kid.

Today, Kidsburgh is a growing and collaborative group – that includes parents and anyone working with kids – dedicated to making all Pittsburgh kids’ lives better. We help fulfill that mission here by offering stories and content that inform and inspire, from helping kids build design skills to helpful guides for families to free creative learning activities.

Kidsburgh is deeply committed to and will continue to purposefully discuss and deepen our knowledge, understanding, and commitment to diversity, equity, accessibility, inclusion, and antiracism. We strive every day to do better and to be better at fostering an authentic sense of belonging for all.
