About Us

The Lehigh University Community Service Office was established in the fall of 1996 to provide a coordinated effort for students, faculty and staff to engage in service to the greater Lehigh Valley area. Currently the office has contact with over 100 local agencies that are always looking for volunteers. In addition to our contact with these agencies, we run major programs such as SERVE Trips, the service break programs; Volunteer Experience, the new student pre-orientation program and America Reads and Counts, a tutoring program for local elementary and middle school children.

Interested in making a difference in the community? Stop by the office, which is located in University Center Room B-001. The office is generally open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Not sure how to get involved in Community Service?
