The Landis Center provides service opportunities for students who are interested in volunteering. Our programs support a wide range of community services, with more than 30 local nonprofit partnerships, including organizations such as Easton Area Community Center, West Ward Neighborhood Partnership, and Third Street Alliance for Women and Children.
Another popular program is Alternative School Break, where teams of students travel during January interim or spring break and help communities build homes, paint, and tutor. Recent destinations have included the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, New Orleans, Chicago, and New York City. Lafayette’s Engineers Without Borders chapter has, for the past several years over breaks, worked to help bring, clean, sustainable drinking water to the village of El Convento in Honduras.
At Lafayette, a can-do spirit pervades, with students often creating their own projects. Active learning takes places inside and outside the classrooms in courses that emphasize a service component, turning an academic experience into something tangible and rewarding.
