Who we serve
We make volunteering easy for...
Do you run a non-profit organization? We assess your needs and create projects for others to easily volunteer and serve those needs. Let us help meet those needs.
Often we know people by their needs, what if we knew them by their name? Do you know someone in need? Learn more about how we can help.
We manage the entire volunteer, project, and communication process for business volunteer and corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs with measurable outcomes and follow up.
Through our nonprofit and business partnerships we help communities beautify, remove graffiti, plant gardens, and more!

About Serve the City
It’s time to cross the line.
Serve the City is a global movement of volunteers, which began in Brussels in 2005 (learn more here) showing kindness in practical ways to people in need. We partner with local non-profit associations that are serving people in need and create meaningful opportunities for volunteers to get involved. Serve the City creates events that mobilize many volunteers to serve in simple ways – sports, music, arts and crafts, meals, friendship and more. We are the connection between the good intentions and talents of people who could volunteer and a meaningful opportunity to get involved.
And that’s where it starts. We cross the line from where we are and serve. But that’s just the beginning. The dream of Serve the City is everyone serving. As soon as possible we invite those we have met while serving to join us, because what we really want is to cross the line together.
Serve the City is for everyone. It’s a revolution, a serving revolution. And it’s going to change the world.
The homeless, asylum seekers, the elderly, the disabled, children in need, victims of abuse. We know them by their needs. What if we knew them by name?
