About

Welcome to the SERVE Philadelphia Professional Development Newsletter. Our goal is to provide a steady source of high quality professional development opportunities for all those with a passion for service in the Philadelphia area.

The Mayor’s Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service partners with other City entities and a range of public and private sector partners to strategically engage volunteers in ways that advance the well being of all Philadelphians, particularly in the areas of education, youth engagement, financial empowerment, food security and community revitalization. 

SERVE Philadelphia is an initiative of the Mayor’s Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service that provides organizations with a space (www.SERVEPhiladelphia.com) to post volunteer opportunities and recruit volunteers to help with those opportunities.  SERVE Philadelphia promotes those opportunities through their Facebook and Twitter accounts, a volunteer e-blast distributed to 4,000+ individuals, and to the City’s network of more than 20,000 employees. 

AmeriCorps VISTAs are the engine by which SERVE Philadelphia advance the goals of City government through citizen service.  Collaboration and sharing what we have learned as VISTAs is at heart of SERVE Philadelphia and it’s how we work best.
