The footlocker program is aimed at educating students of all ages. The program is great for classrooms, scout meetings, libraries, historical societies, senior centers and other adult groups.

Presentations can accommodate up to 40 students; however, they are not suitable for assemblies or combined classrooms.
Weekday Presentation – $100
Each additional presentation of the same topic on the same day – $50
Weeknight and/or Weekend Presentation – $150
Presentations outside of Allegheny County must add an additional $50.
