Volunteer Services

Welcome to Armstrong’s Volunteer Services which makes getting started with volunteer work on campus or in the community simple. Regardless of your major or interests, we will help you find an organization for a mutually rewarding experience.

Volunteer opportunities can last anywhere from a few hours over the course of a day or weekend for special events to major commitments of time and energy. By setting up a volunteer counseling appointment or researching in our resources, you can be certain of knowing what is expected of you before you make your first contact.

What is Volunteer Service?

Volunteer service is unpaid service that directly benefits the community, and is intended to promote goodness or improve human quality of life. There is no financial gain involved for the individual volunteering, but it is known to help with social and civic engagement and skill development. Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer, as well as for the person or community served. It is important to note that volunteering, in hopes to build one’s resume, does not always have to be specific to their field of study. While this would be preferred, volunteering overall is important, no matter the cause.

Examples of Volunteer Service

Why Volunteer?

In addition to the immediate reward of knowing you are making a difference in people's lives, volunteer work provides you with training and skills that can be invaluable to you in your career. Volunteer experience on a resume can give you the edge you need in today's competitive job market. You will also make contacts in the community, both professional and personal. Why wait? Get started today!

Treasure Savannah is an Armstrong day of service that celebrates Armstrong’s long and rich history in Savannah. Join hundreds of students, staff and faculty to learn about the issues facing our city, to give back to our community and to build connections between Armstrong students and the surrounding community. Make sure to take the time and volunteer with the Pirate family in this great initiative; this year brings our 5 year anniversary! You have the chance to volunteer with Treasure Savannah each semester. Learn more and volunteer 

Each year, Armstrong is involved in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and Half Marathon hosted in the City of Savannah. We do this by forming a team that gets to participate in the run, while also hosting a station to help re-energize the runners. This event brings thousands of people to our city and Armstrong always strives to have a high involvement and presence. Keep checking in with the volunteer upcoming opportunities page to see how you can get involved!
