Community Engagement & Volunteering


Community Engagement Projects


Community Engagement is a branch of our Experiential Learning model at Sant'Anna. This type of engagement takes the form of student volunteerism on a non-academic basis, with the aim of community development and leadership. 

At Sant'Anna, community engagement means making an effort to make a difference in the life of our communities and developing the combination of knowledge, skills, values and motivation to make that difference. 

We want our students to recognize themselves as members of our community and therefore engage to improve the social life of the town.

Our students are continuously engaged in various and interesting projects. Some of them are listed below.

"Museum in the Piazza"

Every year, a group of volunteers from Sant’Anna Institute and Le Amiche del Museo Correale (a women's non-profit association who raises funds for the local museum) hold a clothing sale in Sorrento. The sale consists of selling clothing that are donated by the women of Le Amiche del Museo Correale, as well as some members of their respective families. On May 1st 2016, the sale lasted about 12 hours (9 am – 9 pm) and raised approximately €1.600, in which all proceeds from the sale will go to helping restore a painting from the early 19th century.

Free English Conversation Classes

In collaboration with the Town Hall of Sorrento, Sant'Anna Institute organizes free conversation classes in English for low-income locals, since 2014.

The teachers are some of our students from Alfred State College (NY), Plymouth State University and many more schools and colleges of the US! 

The lessons have great success and at the end of the course, both the students and the "professors" are awarded by the Mayor at the Town Hall in Sorrento during an official ceremony.

Beach Clean-up

Every year, our students volunteer to clean up one of the beautiful beaches around the Sorrento Peninsula and engaged in the community with this wonderful volunteering project.

As an example, during the 2015 annual beach clean-up, they have collected 15 bags of rubbish,of which 12 bags were plastics, and from iron material and bulky objects.
