The story of Alabama is a rich heritage of struggle and progress. Our state has confronted history's most pressing social and political conflicts and cultivated some of its most distinguished leaders. Emerging economic development and rich intellectual resources confirm the state's potential, yet great inequity remains. Alabama continues to be one of the poorest states in the country. However, building upon and deeply influenced by the legacies of Alabama's past, the story of Alabama can and will be one of hope and progress for each of its children.
You can be a part of the story through a year of service with Impact Alabama.
58% of young adults do not believe they can make a difference. Do you want to be a statistic—or change the statistics?
Impact collaborates with more than twenty colleges and universities throughout the state of Alabama and their surrounding communities. Student participants at each campus engage in direct service to the community through one of our signature initiatives. Academic/internship credit can be received based on individual institutional policies.
You have the chance to be a part of fundamental, systemic change in the state of Alabama! If you would like to become involved with Impact, please provide us with the following information:
