It is with great pleasure that I share with you servePGH, the City of Pittsburgh’s first-ever service and civic engagement plan!
On September 10, 2009, I became a founding member of Cities of Service, a bipartisan coalition of mayors dedicated to engaging citizens in addressing the great challenges of our time. I committed to developing a citywide plan to harness the power of volunteers and measurably impact Pittsburgh’s most pressing needs.
Yesterday, I made good on that commitment by launching servePGH. ServePGH is a high-impact, citywide blueprint for engaging citizens to work hand-in-hand with government and solve local challenges. Within servePGH are a number of initiatives that were created to significantly impact Pittsburgh neighborhoods and the lives of Pittsburgh youth through citizen service.
Now is the time to get involved. To learn more and sign up to receive updates about the many new and innovative service and civic engagement opportunities, visit: servepgh.pittsburghpa.gov. Also on the website you can download the full servePGH report .
Thank you to all of you who attended the launch of servePGH and have supported its development over the past six months. The citizens of Pittsburgh are our City’s greatest asset and a source of pride. I have no doubt that serving together we can rise to the challenges and address the needs of our great City.
If you have any questions about servePGH, please don’t hesitate to contact Rebecca Kottler-Wein, Chief Service Officer, at 412-255-4765 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
