KEYS (Knowledge to Empower Youths to Success) Service Corps members serve at-risk Pittsburgh and Allegheny County area youth by providing safe places with structured activities, assisting with homework and classwork, implementing community service/service-learning projects, and involving community volunteers in service.
Members serve full time or less than full time at one of our partnering sites while receiving training and support from KEYS staff before and during their year of service. Our members are placed with a variety of schools, after-school programs, community-based organizations, and faith-based organizations.

“It help get me a lot of professional development, it helped surround me by a community of mission-driven people, it also elevated my knowledge around a lot of social issues that I had not been previously exposed to, and most of all it helped me have a positive impact on the Pittsburgh community. Additionally, it has helped me get almost every job I have had after serving with them. I am now apart of an awesome community of members.”
