Students In The Community (SIC)

Pay It Forward

The Mount Aspiring College Students in the Community Programme is the only programme of its type in the country.

Since 1995, a total of over 50,000 hours of voluntary community time has been contributed by MAC students.

We are grateful to the Lottery Grants Board for its ongoing success.
