This program offers the opportunity for students to volunteer abroad or across the united states for one to three weeks during Spring, Summer or Winter break. Students can earn credit and match their interest in volunteering to their program of study. Find out where we are going this year, how to apply and how to fund your travel.
Lehman L.I.F.E. Alternative Break Program
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.
