Ways to Help...







Do you have a special talent or interest that you would like to share with the Pittsfield Youth Workshop? Are you interested in helping us out at our special events and fundraisers? There are a variety of opportunities available to lend a hand at PYW. 


PYW is always looking for volunteers to come down during drop-in hours and provide new activities and challenges to our youth participants. Other volunteer opportunities include assistance with fundraisers, special events, office work, general maintenance, or any other skill areas in your personal or professional background that you think could benefit our program. We look forward to working with you!



Unable to volunteer at the moment?  PYW always accepts donations from individuals and organizations throughout the community.  We have become what we are today through generous donations of electronics, office supplies, games, appliances, food, and a host of other items.  We have also been fortunate enough to receive monetary donations from supporting community members.  The following is an ongoing list of items that we currently need.  We would be grateful for anything you would be willing to give.
