Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Lehman L.I.F.E. Alternative Break Program and the First Annual Global Citizenship Gala.
Lehman L.I.F.E. (Leaders Involved For Everyone) supports service opportunities for Lehman College students by creating an 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 must raise 100% of their program fees, volunteer for at least 25 hours in our very own community, complete an application and interview process as well as attend weekly fundraising and training meetings. The expectation is that the cycle will continue as students bring their experiences back to the community that they volunteered with right here in the Bronx and the greater New York City area. Our typical fundraising over the past seven years has been extremely grassroots. This year, we have decided to put all of our efforts into organizing one large scale event, the First Annual Global Citizenship Gala.
The First Annual Global Citizenship Gala, will take place on May 1, 2014 at Villa Barone Manor at 6:00PM. Our honorees will include Derrick Adkins, an Olympic Gold Medalist and Director of Youth and Community Services for New York Road Runners, in which hundreds of Lehman students have volunteered for. We will also honor Lenny Caro, President & CEO of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce as well as Susan Greenberg, Vice-President at ABC Carpet and Honduran-born businesswoman. After completing their 25 hours of local service, our 28 students who will be taking that experience to volunteer at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and with Students Helping Honduras in El Progreso, Honduras have unanimously voted to honor these individuals at The First Annual Global Citizenship Gala in support of Lehman College students and our Lehman L.I.F.E. program. I hope that you will be able to attend in support of a program that has truly changed hundreds of students' lives over the past 7 years.
