Serve and Learn in Pittsburgh
A unique U.S.-based service learning opportunity
Amizade provides service learning opportunities at sites throughout the world. Home to Amizade’s central office, the Pittsburgh site experience is anchored in the social network of Amizade staff, interns, and affiliates who draw participants into meaningful engagement with the urban environment. In partnerships with local non-profits committed to civic engagement, Amizade volunteers will experience a city in the midst of broad revitalization, and will gain perspective into the complicated impact of the industrial revolution.
Service Opportunities: Neighborhood Revitalization, Food security, Youth Engagement, Walking Tours of “forced displacement” (gentrification) in the Hill District neighborhood, and speakers on the history and evolution of Gentrification in Pittsburgh
