Students volunteering in Peru

Local, National and International Service Projects

  • A grass roots effort led by faculty, staff and students supported the resettlement of 2 refugee families over the past 2 years.  Our families came from Eritrea, a country located in northeast Africa. Originally relocated in Allentown and Easton, some have now moved on to various locations within the US safely settling in with family and friends.
  • Generous grant funding from the Voter Campus Friendly Initiative supported two Democratic Fellows, one in Bethlehem and one at Monroe.  The NCC student/fellows created and promoted student voter engagement activities, registering over 450 new voters.
  • Through a generous endowment allocated to the Center, student groups can apply for competitive grant dollars that support a service project of their choice.    
  • Students have served as research assistants and videographers for David Good’s non-profit, “The Good Project.”
  • Reflection sessions provide students, staff and faculty the opportunity to engage in civil discourse about timely and sometimes controversial topics.  These conversations occur in the Center, facilitated by staff in a safe, caring and accepting environment for all.
