Giving Back

Community Service demonstrates a person’s commitment, volunteerism, and service. It is without pay to a non-profit agency or organization, a group, or an individual in need; it’s  best defined as “giving back” to the community.

Service Learning combines the objectives of community service and volunteerism with learning and curricular objectives. The structure provided by service learning encourages reflection and a demonstration of the knowledge and skills gained from the service opportunity. Service learning provides students with a sense of connection to their communities and helps them to gain a better sense of self and others. It simultaneously builds academic, social, and personal skills because all students can experience success.

Being intentional in all you do, as a leader, creates the ripple effect and change you want to see in yourself and others.



Commitment to a cause/challenge (whatever it may be). To be part of something greater than yourself is one of life’s greatest opportunities.



Taking time to reflect on your impact so that you can have a vision for the next course of action whereby you will make a difference.

New York Military Academy


NYMA has service learning specifically integrated into the curriculum. Students must complete fifty (50) hours of service by May 1st of their senior year. Service may begin the summer prior to a student’s freshmen year. Students who enrolled after the first semester of their freshmen year will complete a pro-rated requirement equal to 6.25 hours times the number of full semesters enrolled at NYMA.

 Coordinating Your Community Service
  1. Submit all required and official documentation to the Academic Office. All hours must be submitted on official organization letterhead with contact information.
  2. The activities that students may participate in vary, but general guidelines require long-term, documented activities. They include: service from after-school and weekend events sponsored by the school and its organizations, volunteer activities outside of the school calendar, or a pre-approved personal program designed by the student where they volunteer at home, elsewhere, or during furloughs.
  3. Most service must be performed outside of school hours unless under the direct supervision of a staff member. However, the NYMA Honor Guard and Color Guard often have off-campus commitments that count toward community service. Another such opportunity would be peer tutoring. The Math Department chair coordinates math tutoring and the National Honor Society adviser coordinates the academic areas.
 What does not qualify as community service?
  1. Activities done as part of normal cadet activities or requirements do not count towards the community service total.
  2. Childcare/babysitting count only when done for a non-profit organization.
  3. Assisting family members is not considered community service.
  4. Time spent traveling to and from a service activity.
