What we're about

GlobalPittsburgh is a non-profit organization established in 1959 as Pittsburgh Council for International Visitors (PCIV). We connect the Pittsburgh community with people here from other countries through group programs, events, and activities. The program is designed for internationals who want to meet people and discover more about the Pittsburgh community, and for local residents and American students who want to meet people from other countries and help them feel more at home in Pittsburgh.

GlobalPittsburghCONNECT membership program offers many perks:

First Thursdays monthly networking events
Quarterly Intercultural Potluck Dinners for members and host families four times each year. We will share ethnic foods, learn about other world cultures, play games and make new friends.
Monthly Group Dinners usually on the first weekend of every month. We will dine as a party in different ethnic restaurants throughout Pittsburgh.
Year-round outdoor group activities: ice skating, snow tubing, pumpkin patch, cinema in the park, bowling, etc.
Free & Discounted Tickets - Over the course of the year, we offer the chance to attend cultural performances such as plays, musical performances, and sporting events.
Thanksgiving and Christmas Hospitality Dinners - Host families invite members to their homes for dinner and conversation. All host families are supporters interested in sharing American culture and learning about the culture and traditions of other countries. Members may enjoy a traditional holiday meal with an American family.

Annual fees to join GlobalPittsburgh CONNECT are $40 for an undergraduate student and $50 for an individual or family membership. For more information visit http://www.globalpittsburgh.org/membership
