The Augsburg University PA Program aims to foster a sense of community and service for the local residents around the Twin Cities metropolitan area. We welcome our students, friends, and family of Augsburg to participate and volunteer with local organizations.

Keep checking in to see new events and volunteering opportunities.


PA Program Student Events:

March 4th, 2023: Polar Plunge
10:30 am – 12:30 pm at Lake Nokomis

Register on the Polar Plunge Website

Join the Augsburg PA program as we freeze for a cause. The Polar Plunge raises funds for the Special Olympics, and we are looking to make a splash and join in. You can register to join the plunge, or volunteer to help run the event behind the scenes during the day of the plunge. Make an account on Polar Plunge MN and add team “Augsburg PA 2024″*


*”Each Plunger must raise a minimum of $75 in order to participate. Online donations are not transferrable to other Plungers once the transaction is complete. At the time of check-in, donations may be distributed among team members if a Plunger has not yet raised $75. Please note: Distribution of donations at check-in will affect donation totals and corresponding incentive levels of those Plunger distributing funds to their teammates.”
