The St. Mary’s University President’s Volunteer Team mission is to connect and increase volunteer opportunities that address community needs and develop a lifetime commitment to service.
St. Mary’s features a dynamic and active student body whose commitment to social justice and dedication to the community is second to none. The President’s Volunteer Team is a way for us to signal that giving back is a key part of the university’s mission for everyone on campus — from students to the President.
Through the President’s Volunteer Team we were able to support major volunteering initiatives, from Habitat For Humanity, to Feed the Hungry to The Coldest Night of the Year, from We Day to the Mustard Seed, and more. Our 2018–19 program of initiatives promises to be just as compelling and important. We welcome all those who wish to make a difference.
