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. AACC took on this role in early 2019 when the Anne Arundel County Volunteer Center closed after 18 years of service. 

Volunteer opportunities in Anne Arundel County range from food drives and sorting pantry items to personally delivering food and toiletries to the homeless, transporting vital products among local organizations, mentoring students, teaching yoga, facilitating groups, and even crafting blankets and warm clothing for children. There are opportunities for individuals, families, groups, clubs and even opportunities that can be done from home.

Looking for Volunteers?

Does your organization need volunteers?

AACC is looking for sustainable, long-term partnerships with county nonprofit organizations for collaboration. Your volunteer activities can make great, hands-on learning experiences for our students that complement classroom learning. Service-learning combines academic studies with community volunteer service. Student volunteers across every academic discipline can engage in 10–20 hours of volunteer service to your organization over the course of a semester. Students work individually, in groups or as a class. Interested in becoming an official partner? Email to get started.
