Get Involved

Thinking about becoming a member? Come by for a tour so one of our tour guides can activate your membership and start the onboarding process.

All HackPGH members are granted 24/7 access to the shop as well as discounts on all HackPGH events including classes.

Tours are held every Monday and Saturday at 7:30pm.
Walk-ins are welcome, but RSVPs are preferred!

Dues & Volunteering

While we collect dues ($55/mo) ($35/mo for Veterans, Students, and Seniors, ID required) to pay our rent and other operating costs, HackPGH would not be a success without the generous contribution of time and effort from our members.  To reflect the value of our members' efforts, HackPittsburgh's membership system operates on a dues + volunteering based system.

HackPGH needs all kinds of volunteer work, donated goods, etc. to be successful.  Members can meet their volunteering requirement by doing work around the shop, hosting events or classes, donating stuff that we need,  coming to a shop clean quarterly or much more! Be creative.  We also have an Amazon wishlist of shop needs that can be found here.

Members have a three month grace period in which to make up any month's missed volunteer time/contribution. Failure to do so will result in revocation of a member's good standing.  If you have any questions about volunteer hours, would like to make a donation in place of volunteering time, need to make up hours, or are not sure how many hours you've volunteered, send email to and coordinate with a board member.
