PASTA is going national. We are a student-led nonprofit with the mission of kids helping kids in the community.
Wherever you are in the country, you have the opportunity to start your own chapter of PASTA! Our chapters impact the community by planning and executing their own service projects through the resources and guidance of our nonprofit. We now also support virtual volunteering projects as well as tutoring and mentorship opportunities. Responsibilities/qualifications for chapters include:
-Consist of 3-6 middle or high school students with an interest in volunteering.
-Devote 4-5hrs/month to do 4-5 service projects annually.
-Prioritize PASTA and uphold our brand and mission.
Benefits for PASTA members and chapters include:
-Do good in your community. Use your talents and passions to help others.
-Learn how to do projects from an idea to execution to evaluation.
A learning lab: learn soft skills, leadership and mentorship skills, and business skills.
To learn more about PASTA and how to start a chapter, all you need to do is to find a team of 3-6 (including yourself), and sign up for a kick-off meeting here: https://forms.gle/X2PzfUtxGW87ggfd7. We'll be in touch about arranging a virtual meeting.
PASTA currently has over 250 members across 38 chapters that have done over 300 service projects since our founding in 2013. In PASTA, you translate your passions and interests into projects. Examples of past projects include guitar and dance lessons, a STEM fair for elementary students, creating "mental health" kits, a "healthy heart" workshop to promote fitness, making an anti-bullying video, Christmas secret Santa activities, and many more. YOU choose your project and we'll guide you with resources, guidance and mentorship every step of the way!

Our mission is very simple: Kids Helping Kids in the Community
Founded in 2013, PASTA is a student-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids in the community. Our organization consists of over 200 students operating through 38 chapters doing small to large scale service projects impacting over 25,000 youth.
PASTA aims to redefine community service. Our members collaborate in their teams of 3-6 students to create and implement projects that help kids in their community. It’s student-inspired and student-led. It’s about running a non-profit and becoming a leader. It's about character and compassion, and learning how to help. And, it all started with 12 kids sitting in a basement wondering if they could make a difference. It’s about the future. It’s about Changing the Way the World Cares.
