Our Civic Engagement program provides you with opportunities for volunteer service and other forms of engagement outside the college gates. For some of you, this will provide practical experiences that will help you make career choices (like a career in service, coaching, or teaching). For others, it will give you a way to balance your studies with different pursuits, like working with kids. The habits, knowledge, and commitments you develop here will help you build a life after college that is fulfilling and meaningful, one that truly exemplifies what it means to be a good man and a good citizen.
doing good with your time
Students at H-SC are doing amazing things - helping to build houses, working with kids, caring for abandoned animals, and cleaning up rivers and roadsides, just to name a few. Some are doing this work as part of service clubs, and some are simply individuals responding to a call for help with a particular project. You can jump into volunteering in lots of different ways!
connecting the College and the community
Hampden-Sydney is a proud participant of The Big Event, a nationwide day of service.
