Unique to the region, The New Pittsburgh Collaborative (NPC) is a coalition of diverse, civically-engaged, young-minded organizations. We encourage regional progress through sharing information, pooling resources, facilitating dialogue and providing access.
On May 13, NPC President Dan Law met with a delegation of young professionals from Jordan at the offices of Global Pittsburgh. The group is currently visiting multiple American cities through the U.S. State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). The program is ran through the U.S. State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
While in the U.S., the group intends to explore "Developing Leadership and Civic Engagement" in an effort to improve strategic engagement strategies and leadership initiatives for young people in Jordan. The group represents various organizations, including the Arab Bank, All Jordan Youth Commission, Associates in Development Association, as well as others.
The NPC connected Pittsburgh with members of the international community through shared experiences in programming, social media outreach, and public policy efforts.

The NPC provides a unique value to the Pittsburgh region by being the only collaboration of regional organizations dedicated to:
- Being a central point of access and communication to and for young adult organizations across the region.
- Promoting and supporting member organizations to the region-at-large and leveraging resources by facilitating partnerships among them.
- Providing regional leadership opportunities, experiences and networking connections to young adults to better affect regional change and progress.
By doing so, the NPC continually builds and strengthens a broad, dynamic network that connects young professionals to community and regional development initiatives throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.
