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.  PULSE Fellows serve for a year beginning in August.

Who are PULSE Fellows?

As a PULSE fellow, you would serve with a Pittsburgh Nonprofit, live with other fellows in intentional community, and grow as a leader.  Through all our activities, we will equip and develop you to become a young adult to be civic and community leaders with a heart for service.

What do PULSE Fellows do?

  • SERVE WITH A NONPROFIT – Serve 35 hours/week for a year (August to August) in a Pittsburgh nonprofit connected to your vocational interests and nonprofit staffing needs. Check out our current Nonprofit Partnersand some of our previous Nonprofit Partners.
  • LIVE IN COMMUNITY – Cultivate community by living together with other fellows and sharing meals, household tasks, finances and learning experiences.
  • GROW AS A LEADER – Participate in leadership training and development (orientation, weekly seminars, retreats, mentoring, one-on-one coaching, etc.)

What are the benefits of becoming a PULSE fellow?

PULSE fellows are provided with food, lodging, transportation, some reimbursable health insurance expenses, and a modest monthly stipend.  PULSE fellows receive Personal Development Funds and are eligible for student loan deferment or forbearance.
