Saleem Ghubril, Pittsburgh Promise

Pittsburgh Promise Lives in All of Us


The Pittsburgh Promise invigorates Pittsburgh Public Schools, the City of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh region, and the Pittsburgh workforce by offering a $40,000 scholarship for every Pittsburgh resident who attends a Pittsburgh public high school for 4 years with a 2.5 GPA average or better and a 90% high school attendance record..  Saleem Ghubril states that “inside every child is a promise, and with the appropriate care, effort, and needed resources, that promise will undoubtedly be fulfilled.”

Saleem is a committed and passionate advocate for children and for the City of Pittsburgh. An ordained Presbyterian minister, he has devoted his life to serving the people of his community through outreach and education programs.

In 1985, Saleem founded The Pittsburgh Project, a community development organization that annually provides free home renovations to hundreds of vulnerable seniors, and mentors, educates, and deploys thousands of volunteer youth in meaningful community service initiatives. Saleem led The Pittsburgh Project until 2008, when he assumed the leadership of The Pittsburgh Promise.
