The SMCC Volunteer Program provides students with a great experience. Volunteering gives students and staff the opportunity to learn about themselves, and to learn about those around them; to build new relationships, and in some cases, to learn about a completely different culture. Whatever the reason for volunteering, someone’s quality of life is benefiting.
Student and staff volunteers work to benefit others; this makes them workers of excellence and quality, and leaders of distinction. Our volunteer program creates community leaders who demonstrate great integrity and character.
Interested students and staff should contact the Office of Student Life and Leadership at 602.243.8069. Many opportunities are available; we encourage you to choose a date and time that fits your schedule.
Be A Leader Foundation
The mission of the Be A Leader Foundation is to increase the number of college-going students by empowering them to become college bound, focused and prepared, through leadership training and mentoring. Ultimate success is achieved through our long-term relationship and stewardship of their educational evolution from middle school into high school, culminating with active participation at the university level, ultimately resulting in a college degree.

The André House
Located in the heart of the Capital Mall District at 213 South 11th Avenue, The André House assists hundreds of people each day. Since its founding in 1984, this ministry has inspired many different community services and programs. Because The André House is interested in the well-being of the individual as well as the surrounding neighborhood, the range of services offered reflects this community-focused mission.
