Programs We Advise
A large part of the work that the LCE staff does throughout the year is advise and support the following student-led service organizations, clubs, and programs:
Volunteers in Action (VIA)
A student volunteer club network of 17 programs that address a number of social issues in and around the local community. Issues range from hunger, to HIV/AIDS awareness, to working with students in local schools. Join a VIA program!
Alternative Break Programs
A student-run winter and spring break program based on the Break-Away model, which takes 150 UVM students to communities around the country and world on winter and/or spring break. On these trips students volunteer, learn about different cultures, and immerse themselves in the communities. Apply for a break program!
Alpha Phi Omega (APO)
A co-ed service fraternity that is connected to the national APO organization. Students focus on one-time service requests as well as established and on-going service projects with local non-profits. Join them!
Campus Kitchens Project (CKP)
This student organization is designed after the national DC Kitchen in Washington, D.C. This program salvages on-campus food, has students safely repackage the food into healthy and well-balanced meals, and then deliver them to local folks in need. Join the CKP crew!
