Non Sibi Weekend
Non Sibi Weekend, which is celebrated each April, represents an evolution from Non Sibi Day, a concept that was meant to engage not only students, faculty and staff but alumni all around the globe in a single, worldwide day of service. The first Non Sibi Day was held on September 15, 2007, and saw nearly 3,000 members of the extended Andover community volunteer their time to projects in 27 states, 13 countries and five continents.
In 2014, Non Sibi Day gave way to two new concepts--Non Sibi Weekend and Non Sibi 365 for alumni.

During Non Sibi Weekend, students, faculty and staff participate in a wide variety of community service projects in the local area, ranging from Boston to Lawrence, while alumni volunteer for projects taking place all around the globe. Beyond encouraging a deeper appreciation for the school's "non sibi" philosophy, the goal of Non Sibi Weekend for students is to provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences for all participants. Juniors focus on education and youth services, lowers on the environment, uppers on hunger, and seniors on homelessness. Among the organizations with whom PA works are Cor Unum in Lawrence, the Boston Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Project Sunshine, the Pine Street Inn, and Lazarus House.
For alumni, Non Sibi 365 provides the opportunity to work on community service projects throughout the year.
