The world is getting smaller and Amizade’s The Global Switchboard aims to facilitate that trend. Pittsburgh has dozens of social-profit organizations which work on global/local connections. The Global Switchboard will provide a shared-space, community-oriented, work center for organizations and individuals involved in global engagement.
The center will:
- Provide an opportunity for like-minded organizations to share resources, advice and to collaborate.
- Give the City of Pittsburgh a physical location for a global home.
- Give Pittsburghers access to a network of international speakers and experts, events and programs, and provide exposure to different cultures.
Located in Doughboy Square in Lawrenceville, membership in The Global Switchboard includes:
- A private desk with storage
- High speed Internet access
- Access to conference rooms
- Access to a classroom
- HD video conferencing
- 24 hours per day/365 per year access

- Programming for members of the Switchboard to improve nonprofit best practices
There’s also an early-signing discounted rate for those who sublease before May 1st.
