Volunteerism and Public Service

At Pitt, we do more than volunteer: We serve. With the community.

Volunteer service is one of the many ways University of Pittsburgh students, faculty, staff, and alumni engage with the people and communities of Pittsburgh. Every volunteer is unique and every act of service is special. What unites us is a shared commitment to realizing a world where everyone thrives. So we’re asking: What does it take for children and communities to thrive?

Our focus areas:

Faculty and Staff Volunteering

By volunteering, we deepen our commitment when it matters most: in a time of great uncertainty. Help us carry out the institutional value of strengthening communities. 

Student Opportunities

Students play an essential part of the University’s commitment to communities, thus we encourage all students to engage in meaningful service opportunities during this pandemic.
