Young Women’s Mentorship Program Holds Pittsfield Fundraiser Concert


Roberta McCulloch-Dews is the Director of Administrative Services in the office of Pittsfield, Massachusetts Mayor Linda Tyer. She’s also a volunteer with Rites of Passage Empowerment – or ROPE – a mentoring program created in 2010 by Youth Alive, the Women of Color Giving Circle, and the Pittsfield School Department. Ahead of ROPE’s October 5th fundraising concert Common Ground II – a celebration of jazz and Jewish music – McCulloch-Dews sat down with WAMC to talk about the mentoring effort. 

Common Ground II takes place Saturday at 7 PM at Barrington Stage at 36 Linden Street in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
