Service Opportunities
Service-Learning and Civic Engagement
Developing life skills to succeed in the workplace

One of the hallmarks of Anna Maria College is its commitment to service. The traditions of volunteerism, service-learning and civic engagement date back to the College's founding in 1946. Over the course of the College's history, hundreds of students, faculty, staff and alumni have offered their time, energy and talents for the Common Good.

For the past three years, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) has honored Anna Maria College as a leader among institutions of higher education for its support of and commitment to service and community by admitting the College to the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

In 2017, nearly 250 of Anna Maria College's First Year Students participated in United Way's Day of Caring. Students also give back to the community through the College's partnership with the Mustard Seed Kitchen and St. John's After School Program, among others.

Over the years Campus Ministry has offered many opportunities for week long service trips. Back in 2014, 18 students spent one week in the Cherokee Nation in Northeast Oklahoma where they provided services on the Cherokee Nation reservation, working at a soup kitchen and performing home repair projects. Most recently, in 2018, 13 students traveled to Edgewater, Florida for the Alternative Winter Break trip to work with Habitat for Humanity and 13 students traveled to Houston, Texas for the Alternative Spring Break trip to help with Hurricane Harvey relief effort work.
