PULSE cultivates a community of young servant leaders to transform Pittsburgh.  We invite talented university graduates to partner with Pittsburgh nonprofits for a year of service and leadership.

Over the last 21 years, we’ve invited about 200 university graduates to partner with over 100 Pittsburgh nonprofits, contributing some 350,000 hours of service to the city and its residents.

  • SERVE – Interested in a year of service and leadership?  Serve in a nonprofit, live in intentional community and grow as a leader.
  • PARTNER – Need help tackling a large scale project or building capacity? Become a nonprofit partner. Host a PULSE fellow.
  • VISIT – Come and see.  Join PULSE for a customizable weekend or week-long service experience.
  • GIVE – Join the PULSE Prayer Team. Partner financially with a gift of support.  Email Chris Cooke at for more info.
