Celebrate Neighborhood Traditions at PNC Fairfax Connection

Inter-generational programming is at the heart of PNC Fairfax Connection offerings.


As so many of us celebrate our own holiday traditions, we invite you to join us to honor the historic traditions and culture of Fairfax this month at PNC Fairfax Connection.  We’re also featuring programming on job readiness and networking.

So whether you’re looking to explore the history of your neighborhood, improve your job search skills, master new technology or gain empowering personal finance insights, there’s something for all ages at the center.

Please check out the current Calendar of Events to find out what programs most interest you.  Upcoming workshops include:

Traditions of Fairfax:  Collect and preserve components of Fairfax heritage, including recipes, music and memories through technology, inter-generational participation and activities for youth, adults and seniors. Dec. 27, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Networking Tips: Complement your online networking efforts by learning tips to meet people you otherwise might not encounter.  If just thinking about walking into a room full of strangers makes you break into a sweat, this workshop is for you.  Learn how to make networking easier and more effective.  Dec. 30, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

A complete list of workshops is available at the center (8220 Carnegie Ave.), via phone at 216-391-4677 or online at www.pncfairfaxconnection.com.  Please stop by and see us today!

    A family entourage of five including myself attended your College Prep class in March. We had a fabulous time. My daughter and I have plans on moving to Arizona this fall where she plans on attending Grand Canyon University.in Phoenix. She attended Pensacola Christian College in Florida last fall, however, I paid her entire tuition. As you can imagine, things didn’t go as planned. Although she finish the first semester and I paid my obligation, things got really tough by the end of the semester. Eventual we took the second semester off to regroup and to figure out how we are going to pay for her college. That’s where you guys come in. You helped us to understand and to better appreciate how the system work concerning scholarships, grants, and loans. As of today about 97 percent of her tuition cost is accounted for. Thank you for being there for us, you definitely filled a need in our lives. carl
