Service and Civic Engagement
Michigan Nonprofit Association is committed to promoting and strengthening a life-long ethic of service and civic engagement through the support of community-building initiatives. Active, engaged volunteers lead to stronger nonprofit organizations. Our programs and affiliate organizations include the LEAGUE Michigan and Michigan Campus Compact.
The LEAGUE Michigan is a program for service, service-learning, and philanthropy education that builds character and empowers young people. The program combines calendar-based events, curriculum, and ongoing service throughout the school year to prepare youth and educators to make a positive impact in their communities. As a program affiliate of MNA since 2006, The LEAGUE Michigan builds the capacity of the nonprofit sector by educating K-12 students about civic engagement. In its 8-year history in Michigan, The LEAGUE has grown to serve over 900 classrooms in over 200 schools. Click here to learn more about The LEAGUE.
Michigan Campus Compact
Michigan Campus Compact is a coalition of college and university presidents committed to promoting the education and commitment of Michigan college students to be engaged citizens, through creating and expanding academic, co-curricular and campus-wide opportunities for community service, service-learning and civic engagement. When campuses, students and community come together, everyone benefits. Research shows that students retain more information from their classes, are inspired by education and are more likely to graduate and become community leaders, citizens and volunteers when engaged with their community in college. When the campus encourages involvement, community needs are addressed through research, partnerships, shared resources and volunteerism. Click here for more information about Michigan Campus Compact.
