When I graduated from Mercyhurst University in May, I knew I was ending a chapter and beginning a new journey as a recent college graduate. While it was difficult leaving the familiar; Mercyhurst University, friends, and family, I decided to join the PULSE program in Pittsburgh, PA.
PULSE cultivates a community of young servant leaders to transform Pittsburgh. They invite recent, college graduates (like myself) to partner with local nonprofits for a year of service and leadership. I got excited about the PULSE program because this idea of serving the community of Pittsburgh and living in an intentional community, seemed like a perfect fit.
The thing I am most looking forward to is giving back to the community. My hope for the year is to build long lasting relationships that will help strengthen my personal and professional growth going forward. The reason I joined PULSE was to serve a bigger purpose. I couldn’t think of a better way then serving the community of Pittsburgh through a nonprofit organization. One of the core values for PULSE is building long and enduring relationships, which is also one of my core values. The thing I am most excited about is meeting the other participants in PULSE and working together to achieve a common goal. That common goal is making Pittsburgh the best community it can be.
Part of my first task as a PULSE participant is to assemble a team of people who will support me in this work. I realize that I can’t do this work alone, that I need others to come alongside me and partner with me.
Would you please consider supporting me in this work? I am in the process of raising a minimum goal of $2500 to cover expenses for this year of service and leadership. Your support will help impact the lives of Pittsburgh’s most vulnerable.
Please fill out the enclosed reply envelope and return it to PULSE, regardless of ability/interest to give financially. You can also give online at www.pulsepittsburgh.org/support. Thank you for your continued investment in my life and in the life of PULSE.
