“Never before has man had such a great capacity to control his own environment, to end hunger, poverty and disease, to banish illiteracy and human misery. We have the power to make the best generation of mankind in the history of the world.”
-President John F. Kennedy
The world is your campus and it presents your opportunity to impact change. Every student, faculty member, and administrator can make a positive difference in the community. Volunteering is a vital piece of your educational experience that will help you improve your critical thinking and give you an opportunity to learn new skills. Volunteering might even prompt you to explore career options you may not have considered.
Ashford University's Sharing Time And Resources or S.T.A.R. Program provides you with the opportunity to give back to your communities through volunteering and service. Through the S.T.A.R. Program platform, you can search for organizations or specific volunteer opportunities. Once projects are completed, you can track your time and even share experiences with the S.T.A.R. volunteer network.
You may access the S.T.A.R. platform directly from the “Popular Links” section of your Student Portal.
