Student Involvement

TouroCOM students are activists and advocates. They work tirelessly to make the communities they come from and those that they serve safer, healthier, and happier.

Whether you enjoy running or teaching, or if you have a knack for planning and organizing, there’s a way for you to get involved. Explore our student organizations, many of which regularly plan and participate in all kinds of community service activities.

Put your talents to practice and make a real impact in Harlem, Middletown and beyond.

Making a Difference
How do student groups at TouroCOM help local communities?

Annual Diaper Drive
The Pediatrics Club at Middletown holds an annual diaper drive to raise diapers for children in need within the surrounding local communities.

Getting Involved
Students from various club organizations volunteer regularly with the Orange County Department of Health under the Medical Reserve Corps of Orange Co. or, most recently, with the COVID-19 pandemic to provide information and guidance as to how and where to get screened.

Salud para Todos (Health for All)
"Salud para todos" is a student driven initiative where students volunteer to provide informative, educational medical sessions to Spanish-speaking residents of the Middletown community.

Keeping Harlem Healthy
The AMA and Sigma Sigma Phi collaborate every year to organize the Spring Health Fair.

Raising money and awareness 
Proceeds from the AMSA Game Night were donated to the March of Dimes, and the group has also participated in the Spring Health Fair, raising awareness about BMI. 

Standing (and cycling) in solidarity
The AMA-MSS hosted a Miles for Healthier Lifestyles Bike and Run Relay, and donated all proceeds to Harlem Children’s Zone, a local nonprofit.
