"As Aggies we believe that service is not something we should do, but something we will do. As followers of Christ, we believe in serving wholeheartedly and often. AMC has the honor of working with organizations like Still Creek Boys Ranch and the Special Olympics, serving alongside The Big Event, and supporting other organization's service efforts. It is our privilege to serve our philanthropy, Building A Future, an organization based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras that seeks to provide education and care for the nation's impoverished and destitute children. If travel restrictions allow, we will spend our Spring Break serving alongside BAF. Service has always been a vital part of what makes AMC special, and we look to continue this heart for service for the entirety of our time at Texas A&M.” - Coleman Curry '18, Service Chairman 2016-2017
Building A Future (BAF)
AMC has supported Jorge Mahomar and his non-profit organization Building a Future in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, since the spring of 2005. In a country of 7.4 million people that is noted as one of the poorest in the world and statistics that show 33% illiteracy and a 7.5% high school completion rate, Building a Future aims to bring kids in off the street and provide them with shelter, food, clothing, medical care, and an education. The money AMC raises for G.L.O.W 5k goes to this cause. For more information, please watch the video above or visit buildingafuture.org.
Still Creek Boys Ranch
Since 1988 Still Creek has rescued boys and girls from crisis environments and resorted them through Christian education. Resident students are places in a loving, safe, Christ-centered home and restore their lives through their accredited boarding school, family-style home environment, Bible-based counseling, TAPPS athletics, and much more. AMC visits Still Creek Ranch weekly and spends time playing sports, talking, and investing in the young men there. For more information about Still Creek Ranch, please visit stillcreekranch.org.
Jamaica Mission Trip 2016
Guatemala Mission Trip 2015
Jamaica Mission Trip 2014
During Spring Break 2014, 12 men traveled to Kingston, Jamaica and worked alongside Mustard Seed Communities, a ministry devoted to providing care to special needs and destitute children. The men did everything and anything that the team at Mustard Seed needed. This included spending time with children, morning feedings, building sidewalks, constructing a prayer garden, and many other service-oriented activities. Though the trip impacted each man in a different way, everyone walked away with a better understanding of what it looks like to love our Father and love on another. Check out some of the highlights below.
