GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is a monthly night of networking and socializing where GlobalPittsburgh members and friends welcome State Department guests from abroad, international students and expatriates from all over the world. It's the easiest way to experience the world without leaving Pittsburgh


Come practice language skills, meet others working in the international realm, make new friends who share global interests, and learn firsthand about what is happening outside the U.S. For newcomers, it's a great way to connect with others from their country or with people from other countries who are sharing the same experience of being far from home.

Everyone is welcome!

In November, our special guests will be 10 participants of Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Professional Fellows Program. 

This is a U.S. Department of State program that empowers entrepreneurs and civil society leaders to strengthen their capacity to launch and advance their entrepreneurial ideas and to effectively contribute to social and economic development in their communities. The fellows are from Belize, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Sint Maarten, and Venezuela.
