How to Partner with us to Recruit Volunteers 

Is your nonprofit, school, or government agency looking for volunteers?  Would you like to be able to network, receive training and collaborate with other organizations?  We are excited to partner with you to help your organization achieve its mission and goals! 

Step 1: Complete our short online registration form. This will get you into our database!

Step 2: Consider how to best utilize Pitt students to fulfill your mission. By creating a plan for engagement you will be ready to post opportunities that are both meaningful and productive to you and our students. Students enjoy understanding how their service will directly impact your agency, your clients, and your community. By sharing with them how each projects accomplishes one of these, you are inspiring future participation! 

Step 3: Make a back up plan for your volunteer activities! Weather can alter plans and students work much faster than expected! Be sure to have a “wish-list” of items to complete if your out-door project(s) can’t proceed, or the project you thought would take all day is finished in less than an hour!

PittServes Community Grants

The PittServes grant opportunities provide additional resources to community partners in order for them to achieve their goals and serve their mission. With these grants being implemented we first hope to support our partners' initiatives throughout the Pittsburgh region. Second, we hope to increase the quality of service projects for students. 

Leveraging the UP to $3,000, awards will be distributed to community partners for the implementation of signature days of service and ongoing volunteer projects. Projects will be reviewed and determined levels of funding will be decided upon by the selection committee composed of students and staff. Organizations may request any amount between $100 - $3,000 to enhance their proposed projects. The preferred method of submission is to utilize the online form located below. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis or until funds are no longer available.
