Preparing for a Life of Service to Others

The Office of Community Service and Volunteerism directly supports the College's mission "to prepare students for a life of service to others" by (1) providing LVC students with incentives for service and (2) organizing opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to serve together.

Certainly, service is its own reward. Additionally, LVC provides encouragement by granting three community service awards-bronze, silver, and gold-which may be included in one's personal profile on LVC's Job Center. Let prospective employers know that you are someone who cares about the community!

Should you need help planning a community service project, feel free to contact me at or (717) 867-6135.
