At the heart of the Academy’s mission is a commitment to service. Our alums volunteer in communities across the globe, serving a variety of organizations. They also volunteer at their alma mater. Albuquerque Academy’s Advancement Team relies heavily on volunteers to help us coordinate reunions, plan events, and raise funds to support the school’s mission. We have a number of volunteer opportunities available. Here are a few ways you can get involved:
Help build the momentum for your upcoming reunion by joining your class reunion committee—encourage support of the class gift, plan your reunion event, or simply make calls to motivate classmates to attend. This year, classes ending in 5 and 0 will celebrate their reunions during Homecoming Weekend 2020. Please call (505-828-3234) or e-mail Valery Galanter ’01 for more information about the various opportunities available.
