Working together for a better world


At the PKG Center, we help you to connect with a wide variety of public service projects in local, national, and global communities. We also provide guidance—and often funding—for your project. Our mission is to get you out there, working side-by-side with like-minded collaborators to help build—in large ways and small—more humane communities. You contribute your skills and your knowledge, your energy and your spirit, your creativity and your ingenuity to improve the way the world works, one project at a time. Depending on the program or the initiative you choose to work on, your involvement may last a day, several weeks, or longer.
