Volunteer

Service is the core of EGMCA’s program to empower today’s youth and build tomorrow’s leaders. Through community service, our youth contribute to society and become active participants in our local and global communities. Not only do they receive the benefits of leadership, discipline, responsibility, management skills development, cooperation, personal pride, and self-esteem, but they also help spread the value of charitable service to others.

EGMCA offers many charitable volunteer opportunities to choose from that vary in duration: short-term, long-term, and on-going. EGMCA relies on a substantial volunteer workforce to ensure the success of each student-led community service project (CSP).
