Community Involvement

Environmental Club

Annapolis Farm
The college has a student-run garden.

The St. John’s Environmental Club is devoted to creating awareness on campus about issues relating to protection, conservation, preservation, and restoration—with an emphasis on educating and empowering students. Past projects of the club include setting up a bike share program, donating leftover dining hall food to the Light house (a homeless prevention support center in Annapolis), planning events such as an Earth Day celebration, and organizing seminars on various environmentally related topics.

Pink Triangle Society

Pink Triangle is an LGBTQIA alliance group. They meet regularly to have seminar-style discussions about sexuality and gender. Questions for discussion include: “What unites people who are queer and/or transgender other than the obvious?” “What makes something taboo?” Pink Triangle organizes on-campus and community activism efforts like Sexual Awareness Week. The club also attends relevant events like plays, protests, and concerts in the local area.

Project Polity

This student-run organization arranges group volunteer opportunities. Traditionally, Project Polity coordinates several large activities per year. Past projects have included elementary school tutoring, senior center activities, and homeless shelter work.

Service Opportunities

Besides Project Polity, the best way to find service opportunities in your area of interest is through the Anne Arundel County Volunteer Center. Their opportunity calendar is refreshed often, so check back for new opportunities. St. John’s students frequently volunteer with the Stanton Center, Touchstones, and Light House
