Nazareth in Action Worldwide

This global effort encourages Nazareth alumni, students, families, and friends to make a difference through community engagement opportunities.

Nazareth in Action Worldwide carries the vision and values held closest to the Nazareth experience — inclusion, cooperation, changemaking, and service — into shared action and meaningful impact for the communities in which we work and live.

Nazareth in Action Worldwide is an open invitation to every member of the Nazareth community to roll up your sleeves, come together, and give back through volunteer opportunities in communities around the world during March 2024. In collaboration with community partners and organizations, the Naz family can help promote the importance and value of taking action for social justice.

How can you get involved?

Host a site

Raise your hand to coordinate a site in your community or virtually

Step 1: Plan your event
  • Reach out to a local organization you’d like to partner with and discuss their needs and ideas
  • Determine a date, time, location, the number of volunteers you hope to host, any requirements (attire, age restrictions, background, paperwork), and any other helpful details (parking, etc.)
  • Sites should not require any payment
Step 2: Let Nazareth know
  • Once you’ve confirmed the details (location, date, time, number of volunteer spots, attire, and any other requirements), let the Nazareth Alumni Engagement office know and share your contact info: Fill out the Host a Site form.
Step 3: What’s next
  • Nazareth will provide support for any questions you may have
  • We’ll promote your site on the Nazareth in Action Worldwide website and encourage alumni, parents, and friends to sign up
  • Every participant will get a T-shirt with the Nazareth in Action Worldwide logo
