TeleCommunity is a FREE program for students, ages 10 to 18.

Our sessions take place in The College Hall Building, Room 336 on the Duquesne University campus. We usually meet on alternating Saturdays during the school year. Summer sessions run for a five-day week in July. Check our schedule for the exact times and dates.

When to Register

TeleCommunity accepts new students throughout the fall, winter, and spring. Just make sure you register before your first session.
