Volunteer and Community Service

Want to serve your community and make a difference?

Anne Arundel Community College helps thousands of students, faculty and staff connect to causes that matter to them while providing a helping hand to organizations in need. We are pleased to extend that service to the entire Anne Arundel County community.

In January 2019, services previously provided by the Anne Arundel County Volunteer Center will transition to Anne Arundel Community College. What that means is that in addition to campus-driven, service-learning opportunities, AACC's Sarbanes Center for Public and Community Service will actively promote and support volunteer opportunities around the county as well as unique partnerships with local nonprofits. Tune in every Wednesday to our Volunteer Voice program on WNAV 1430 AM radio to hear about upcoming volunteer opportunities in the county.

Volunteer to get experience, meet others and give back to your community. Here’s how to get started:

In order to sign up or express interest in any of our county’s volunteer opportunities and activities, you’ll need to create a Volunteermatch.org account so you can log in and research where you can serve!


Court-Ordered Volunteers

If you have court-ordered community service hours to complete, you may be able to find opportunities through VolunteerMatch.org.

Please Note: You must notify any organization you wish to volunteer for that you have court-ordered community service hours to complete and provide information on the nature of your offense. Failure to notify the organization may result in an inability to verify hours completed. Whenever you attend a project, we strongly recommend that you get a community organization official to verify the hours you have served at the end of the project. It is often difficult to get verification of hours at a later date. Anne Arundel Community College does not provide hour verification for any project.


Nonprofit Organizations

Does your organization need volunteers? If you'd like help getting the word out about your needs and want to connect with qualified volunteers who are both passionate and committed to your cause, add your request to the National Volunteer Database. Volunteermatch.org provides unlimited, do-it-yourself posting of volunteer opportunities. If you are interested in becoming a service-learning partner with AACC, contact our service-learning coordinator Tresa Ballard at 410-777-2366.
