Manchester Bidwell Corporation (MBC) is an empowering atmosphere of art, light and music. The beauty we’ve designed into our center isn’t window dressing; it’s an essential part of our success. The environment we’ve created at MBC gives people of all ages the opportunities and tools they need to envision and build a better, brighter future for themselves.
Our Guiding Principles
Our guiding principles and diverse programming transform the lives of our community, adults-in-transition and Pittsburgh-area youth. These principles are at the heart of our Founder & Executive Chairman Bill Strickland’s educational model and in his own words, are the cure to the cycle of poverty. We implement these principles in many ways – adult career training, youth arts education and social enterprise – but the end result is a better way forward for our community.
