Service learning activities let you make positive change in the larger community.
At NMH, we believe that learning and growth require genuine service to others. So we offer lots of service learning opportunities, where you can use your individual skills to serve the greater good.
There are more than 20 options for volunteer work available in our service learning program.
You can engage in a weekly project for cocurricular course credit, such as tutoring local elementary school students, becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister, or helping to prepare and serve food at a local free-meal site.
You can become a member of a service club to raise awareness about issues that matter to you, such as economic inequality, education equity, food scarcity, gender inequality, and health-related issues.
You can also participate in special one-day events such as Habitat for Humanity building days, a clean-up project at the Connecticut River, or volunteer days with a mobile food bank.
Our service learning director will help you identify the best fit for your interests and schedule. You can even apply to design your own service-learning project or volunteer experience.
We believe learning and growth require genuine service to others – and at Northfield Mount Hermon, service demands respect, compassion, and empathy.
