Volunteer Experience

You are here

Begin your journey at Lehigh through service! As a participant of VE, you will immerse yourself in three days of community service within the Lehigh Valley. During this time you will discover area agencies, take action to help alleviate issues facing their new community and build new but lasting friendships. VE is hosted through Lehigh’s Community Service Office, which offers students a pathway to continue engaging in meaningful service through their four years at Lehigh if they so choose. All VE participants get the opportunity to serve at agencies in South Bethlehem and the surrounding Lehigh Valley.

Some agencies include:

  • Feed the Children
  • Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center
  • New Bethany Ministries
  • Victory House in Bethlehem Area School District

Trips are led by community-oriented, upper-class students who are committed to providing you with the best first three days on campus you can have. Evenings are spent taking part in activities with your fellow volunteers that help you become acquainted to your new home and new friends.
