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 Mayor Bloomberg and fifteen other Mayors from across our nation to launch the Cities of Service coalition. By signing the Declaration of Service, Mayor Ravenstahl committed to developing a coordinated strategy to utilize impact volunteerism as a significant municipal strategy for addressing local challenges.
The City of Pittsburgh's service blueprint, servePGH, seeks to engage citizens in impacting our City's greatest challenges through the following service initiatives: Love Your Block, Redd Up Zone, Snow Angels, Mayor's Mentoring Initiative, Civic Leadership Academy, Citizen Service Award, and Sustainable Home Improvement Partnership.
