Service Opportunities


In fulfillment of Mount Marty University’s Benedictine mission to prepare students for a contemporary world of work, service to the human community and personal growth, service trips aim to give you a broader sense of community, one that often extends beyond our campus and community.

 At Mount Marty, our students are not only looking for careers but also for ways to serve others. From mentoring local youth at the Boys and Girls Club in Yankton to helping resettle refugees in Louisville, Kentucky, everything we do is focused on community and making a positive impact in the world.

We surround ourselves with people who are eager to share their talents, open to new experiences, and willing to put their heads together to get the job done. Some of our students are Catholic; others are not. But we all have in common the commitment to create the best versions of ourselves through service to others.
