Date Established
Apr 16, 2017
History
Lehman L.I.F.E. supports service opportunities for students by creating awareness of need in communities around the world and fostering action through volunteer work. Our main goal is to increase awareness of issues affecting humanity from our campus to the global society.
Students have traveled to Dominican Republic, New Orleans, Virginia Beach, Cincinnati, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Kenya to perform community service efforts and aid other communities in their own sustainability. Each year, we begin planning for the following academic year's trips.
Students are required to fundraise or pay for 100% of their Lehman L.I.F.E. trip. They meet 2 hours a week for 2 semesters, volunteer a minimum of 25 hours locally and each take on an individual role in the program to partner with grassroots leaders across the globe.
