Joined in November 2011

About Us

On September 10, 2009, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl pledged that the City of Pittsburgh would help the country achieve the goals of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act by joining New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and fifteen other mayors from across our nation to launch the Cities of Service coalition. The bipartisan coalition includes more than 100 mayors - representing nearly 50 million Americans - who have committed to work together to engage citizens in a multi-year effort to address pressing city needs through impact volunteerism. By signing the Declaration of Service, Mayor Ravenstahl committed to developing a coordinated strategy to utilize service as a significant municipal strategy for addressing local challenges.

Mayor Ravenstahl launched servePGH in March 2011 to engage Pittsburgh's citizens in service and answer President Obama's national call to volunteerism. Through seven new and innovative servePGH initiatives, Mayor Ravenstahl has engaged citizens in volunteer-fueled solutions to revitalize City blocks, restore vulnerable resident's homes, help middle-school youth navigate life's challenges, and more.
