Announcements & Resources

National Month of Service - October 2015

We are pleased to announce SNMA's 2015 National Week of Service. SNMA has a dedicated commitment to service. As such, we are continuing the successful tradition of National Day of Service to celebrate the traditions on which SNMA was founded.

We are proud to expand National Day of Service to National Week of Service to highlight the great work that our chapters perform. In line with the 2015-2016 Executive Agenda, we would like to highlight activities within Mental Health.

Join us in launching the #SNMA Cares: Mission for Mental Health.

Last year, chapters across the nation participated in community service projects ranging from walking for heart disease, feeding from the community, and building homes for those in need.

Please take the time to complete the information requested at this link: http://goo.gl/forms/TdYJd2W9nu and let us know what your chapter is doing!!!

We want to see your chapter in action! Please send pictures, videos and more to communityservice@snma.org. We want to hear from you!


Service Grant

The purpose of the SNMA Community Service Grant Program is to encourage local chapters to develop student-initiated service projects. By providing financial assistance to our chapters, this program aims to increase participation in community service across the nation. Chapter projects should comply with the mission of the SNMA and should ideally seek to fulfill the National Health Education & Disease Prevention and Pipeline Programs Service Protocols. Any chartered SNMA chapter is eligible to apply. Two (2) chapters will be selected as recipients of a monetary award to aid their efforts.

National Community Service Protocols

For ideas on how to participate in each protocol, feel free to utilize our Protocol Handbook and accompanying presentation.

How Can My Chapter Participate?
SNMA chapters are encouraged to use these protocols on their campuses!
For more information and instructions on how your chapter can participate in SNMA protocols, please email communityservice@snma.org or your regional director (see BOD directory).

Deadlines / Reporting
Each quarter, SNMA chapters are required to submit Chapter Report Forms detailing activities. This helps us seek grants to help the regions and chapters continue service, as well as keep us abreast of SNMA activities nationwide.
