About the PKG Center

The PKG Center taps and expands MIT students’ unique skills and interests to prepare them to explore and address complex social and environmental challenges. We educate students to collaborate ethically and effectively with community partners to engage in meaningful public service, today and in their lives beyond MIT.

We offer over a dozen service learning programs for undergraduate and graduate students ranging from introductory to advanced, spanning all MIT majors. We believe every MIT student should have the opportunity to engage in public service. For this reason, we charge no fees to participate in PKG programs.
