Community Engagement & Volunteering

This type of engagement takes the form of student volunteerism on a non-academic basis, with the aim of community development and leadership.  At Sant’Anna, community engagement means making an effort to make a difference in the life of the local communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference.    Sant’Anna and CAP want their students to recognize themselves as members of the Sorrento community and therefore help students to engage in these activities around the town.  Below is a list of community engagement and volunteer activities our students have previously participated in:

  • “Museum in Piazza”
  • Free English Conversation Classes
  • Beach Clean-up
  • Social Work
  • “Kick for a Cause”
