Volunteer on a project

If you’re as passionate about helping the world as we are, why not join us? We will send four teams to Haiti this year alone. And every extra hand helps. If you loved serving when you were a student at MNU, why not continue that passion?

Current Project Needs

  1. Join one of our LQVE Haiti teams and travel abroad. Contact MNU ServiceCorps for details on how to apply.
  2. Raise funds by donating your time to help set-up, serve or tear down at the President’s Honors Gala.

We value the work of all our partnering organizations. We always strive to develop long-term relationships with each one of them. This is why we also invite you to choose a volunteer opportunity to continue the work with past projects. Your time will help us to continue supporting these worthy organizations.

During the 2016-18 school years, our students, faculty and staff supported a new project in the rural Cascade Pichon region of Haiti.

Completed Passion to Server Projects


In addition to regularly ministering to the children helped by the Kansas City Urban Youth Ministry, MNU students decided to make a financial difference in these children’s lives. Students worked to raise more than $8,300 during the 2011-2012 academic year. The money went to upgrade the Rosedale Ridge apartment complex, provide playground equipment, and purchase a van.

Proving that one person, one student, can make a difference, MNU students raised $35,000 during the 2010-2011 academic year for the Siaya, Kenya Orphanage. When MNU student, Jeb Flynn, spent a summer in Kenya, he proposed the university develop a plan to help. The money raised helped purchase land for housing, build sustainable gardens and provide ongoing mentorship for the children.

In 2009-2010 the idea was that posed that ‘if’ 1,000 faculty, staff and students each donated $25 per semester—less than $2 per week—what could they do for the world? As a community, MNU raised more than $50,000 that year. Partnering with Rotary International, Heart to Heart International and Engineers Without Borders KC, the village of Patanatic, Guatemala received a new health clinic.
