                  “Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities.
               Seize common occasions and make them great.”
   The Helping Hand
        is published annually

                   by the

             Office of Student Life
                          G 61 Student Union
                  University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown

In a society where career related experience says just as much about you as a
baccalaureate degree, students need to take every opportunity offered to them.
The Office of Student Life feels that the Helping Hand booklet offers students a
chance to gain the experience necessary to compete in the workforce. The
Helping Hand has been designed in the past to successfully generate interest in
local service and volunteer organizations and again this serves as its main
purpose. The relationship between students and local volunteer organizations
has been successful throughout past years, and we wish to continue to nurture
that relationship to form a better bond between the University of Pittsburgh at
Johnstown and the community.
The organizations listed in this booklet are constantly in need of assistance from
members of the community, and the Helping Hand allows students seeking to
gain practical work-related training a chance to acquire hands-on work experience
by assisting local service and volunteer organizations.




                            In the spirit of lending a helping hand, we offer
                            you this addition of Helping Hand to continue the
                            tradition of offering support and guidance to
                            those who need it.

DESCRIPTION:         Lift Johnstown is a dynamic partnership working to imple-
                     ment three plans that will enable our community to "re-
                     invent" Johnstown and shape our region's future:
                              1) The City of Johnstown Master Plan
                              2) The 2020 Regional Vision Report
                              3) The Laurel Highlands Conservation
                              Landscape Initiative

                     We invite other groups and individuals to join our collabo-
                     rative efforts to rebuild our economy, knit a stronger social
                     fabric and take advantage of the outstanding recreational
                     and cultural opportunities offered by the mountains,
                     the rivers and the rich heritage that literally touch John-
                     stown. Lift Johnstown is not setting a new agenda. We
                     are working to implement the projects already identified by
                     our community as priorities with focused efforts in the
                     Downtown and various neighborhoods, as well as regional
                     education and recreation development efforts that are truly
                     regional in scope and impact, encompassing surrounding
                     municipalities and landscapes. Collaboration in imple-
                     menting the three plans is the centerpiece of Lift John-
                     stown. Each of the three plans is a thoughtful, creative
                     examination of the assets and needs of our communi-
                     ty. Each plan came from a different perspective but they
                     all recognized many of the same assets and offer overlap-
                     ping goals as we look to what our future can be.
