Life More Abundant

The logo of the Life More Abundant program

The Life More Abundant (LMA) program is Randolph College’s justice based service program designed to engage Randolph College students in community projects while exposing them to topics of social justice such as race, socio-economic status, equity, privilege and civic responsibility.  By engaging in such work, students will:

  • increase their cultural competence, critical consciousness and cultural humility;
  • examine the causes of injustice and work toward creating social change;
  • develop a sense of agency and the belief that they can make a difference in the world, and;
  • establish an ethic of civic responsibility, understanding their role in creating an equitable society.

Service projects are designed and facilitated by students selected to be Community Fellows.  The Community Fellows work closely with our community partners to discuss community and program needs.  From this, yearlong partnerships are formed and a series of service projects are established for the academic year.

Community Partners


Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg provides a safe and friendly space for children in the community to learn, be creative, and have fun! Community Fellows and Randolph students will work with the club to design a reading program for club members.  Elements of the program may include: reading time, student to student reading teams, book clubs and more!  How can you help make reading exciting while instilling a life long skill that will improve a child’s future?
