Lasallian Immersion and Volunteer Experience (LIVE)
The Lasallian Immersion and Volunteer Experience (LIVE) gives students the opportunity to perform community service projects and create lasting friendships with fellow Explorers. Our LIVE students have contributed over 15,000 total hours of service in communities from New Jersey to Kenya.
The mission of the Lasallian Immersion & Volunteer Experience is to give students the opportunity to gain knowledge and first-hand experience of social justice issues, both at home and abroad, through meaningful service done in partnership with local communities to better live our common Lasallian values of faith, service, and community.
UMSS offers students opportunities to confront the challenges that many local communities face. These Programs embody the Lasallian vision of intellectual and spiritual development by working together to foster growth, understanding, and change as students experience a deeper sense of what it means to live and work in solidarity with a community.
Lasallian Immersion and Volunteer Experience is dedicated to living out Lasallian values by gaining understanding of the global community and the social justice issues that affect that community.
Through capacity-building efforts, La Salle students discover the importance of giving back while learning about themselves and others. Students partner with local communities and immerse themselves in cultures by building relationships with the people they serve. Lasallian Immersion & Volunteer Experience strives to improve the quality of life within the global community by acting on the natural human instinct to help each other.
