What is Non Sibi?
Andover’s Non Sibi initiative was established in 2007 to connect alumni, parents, students, faculty, and staff through local community service projects or events. This opportunity provides members of the Andover family a chance to work side by side and make a difference locally through the spirit that serves as our school motto.
We continue to receive feedback from alumni around the world about their experiences. One alum who participated in a program called “Birthday Wishes” in an orphanage in Hong Kong wrote:
“This experience reinforced my pride in the school and its alumni. Andover is a special place, and I am grateful to be a member of a community with the ability to give.”
It's the place where alumni and students, former and current faculty, past and current parents, and friends can discuss projects leading up to service opportunities and share reflections and photos, blog, and keep in touch with one another afterward.
How do I get involved?
There are many ways to show your non sibi spirit: you can be a project leader, organize an individual project, or join a project that has already been planned.
The annual kickoff, Non Sibi Day, typically the first Saturday in October, is when the campus community gathers to complete many projects, but projects also take place on different days throughout the year. Visit the Non Sibi online community to see all projects, add your own project, and share photos, videos, and reflections on your project.
We list all proposed projects and details such as project leader's name and contact information, location, hours, parking, directions, what to bring, etc. in this community with a link to sign up for a project, either as a project leader, a volunteer joining a project, or as an individual project participant.
