Post-Graduate Opportunities

Serving in a post-graduate volunteer program after Manhattan College can be a meaningful way to serve in a community-based organization, or school,  while engaging questions of social justice, solidarity and simple living. There are over 200 secular and faith-based post-graduate service organizations to choose from. Throughout the year, CMSA offers a number of programs to help students determine if post graduate service is a good option for them. If you are curious about this process, and what a year of service could look like for you, we recommend spending time researching and speaking with recruiters, former volunteers, mentors, and fellow Jasper Alumni that have experienced a year of service themselves!
