Inspired by our Lasallian mission, community service connects us to our home in ways that other activities do not. It takes us out of our comfort zones and helps us appreciate other perspectives. It puts our talents and gifts to good use. We encourage all students to participate in some form of service during their time at Manhattan College.
Ongoing Weekly Service: LOCo
The Lasallian Outreach Collaborative (LOCo) is an opportunity for students to commit to weekly service with our local partner organizations in the Bronx and greater New York City area.
Volunteering on a weekly basis is a wonderful way to get to know the local community and develop relationships with the people you’re serving and working alongside.
Some students use LOCo as an opportunity to build skills applicable to their major or interests, such as tutoring children at Kingsbridge Heights Community Center or learning about social work and advocacy at Fordham-Bedford Community Services. Others consider it a simple and effective way to give back to the College’s home borough.
