Are you interested in service? The Community Service Office is holding its annual SERVE program over winter and spring break. Over each break, students go across the United States to serve communities in need. This year, we have 1 trip over winter break and 3 trips over spring break.

winterSERVE will be working in North Carolina with Habitat for Humanity from the 6th until the 12th of January. The CSO will arrange for you to stay in your residence hall/chapter house the day prior to the trip so you have time to travel back and settle into Lehigh. There will be 9 students and one faculty/staff adviser. All food, lodging in a local church, and transportation are included in the trip cost.

springSERVE will have 3 separate trips:

Baltimore, MD exploring Urban Poverty issues, Willowick, OH exploring Environmental Issues, and Grand Rapids, MI exploring affordable, LEED certified housing through Habitat for Humanity. Like winterSERVE, the trip cost includes everything on the trip, and there are 9 student spots per trip. springSERVE will run the entire week of Spring Break.
