Coronavirus Update: Marin Academy Community Action Goes Virtual
Given the shelter in place orders, we will not be able to hold our MA Family Community Action Day on April 19. However, one way we can continue to feel connected is through service and there are ways we can support our community partner organizations at this time.
On campus and beyond, the MA community responds to real-world challenges and issues through service, social justice and advocacy.
Community Action Goals
- Students develop a heightened awareness of and sensitivity to the needs of others within their community—especially those marginalized or under-resourced—so as to foster empathy and a desire to make a positive impact in the community.
- Students apply academic, social and interpersonal skills for the betterment of the community. They are involved in making informed decisions and engaging in service, social justice and advocacy to address relevant, real-world challenges and issues.
- Students gain a greater understanding of themselves as contributing, compassionate human beings.
- Students develop strong leadership and team-building skills through community engagement.
