LOVE: Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience

College student engages with baby in underserved country.

The Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experience (LOVE) is Manhattan College’s flagship service-immersion program for students. Each LOVE trip offers a different social justice experience: whether it’s the chance to live and work with disabled orphans in Jamaica, learn about border and immigration issues in Arizona, or building homes in New Orleans.

Domestic and international trips are offered during school breaks. Apply to a specific program, and if accepted, you will spend the semester prior to your trip learning about the culture of your destination and the prevalent humanitarian and social justice issues with your group.

Anyone who has been on a LOVE trip will agree that it’s a transformative experience, and guaranteed to open your eyes to different perspectives on very real issues in today’s world.

How to Join

All students are encouraged to apply! Learn more at the biannual activities and volunteer fair which happens at the start of each fall and spring semester, and look for emails with information and application deadlines, as well as special events on campus throughout the year.
