Community Service & Engagement (CSE)

Volunteerism, Networking, and Civic Engagement

There are great volunteering opportunities with NGOs.
Some of our majors include a course that is just about community service with an NGO of your preference. We help you select the NGO that suits your interests.
Field trips! Our students volunteer to clean beaches, plant trees, entertain sick children, and much more. They also visit newspapers, hospitals, TV stations, industrial plants, museums, etc.
They say teaching is the best way to learn. We partner with MMKN, an organization that trains you and then lets you to give reinforcement classes to 9th-grade students in public schools. Our students are teaching French, physics, chemistry, biology, and math in the Beirut and Byblos areas.
Our students get to meet Lebanese pioneers in person and visit the organizations they run. The picture shows our students during a tour of MEA.

Volunteer Teachers Program with MMKN NGO

In partnership with MMKN NGO since 2011, CSE has been instrumental in guiding LAU students to offer essential academic reinforcement to Grade 8 and 9 public school students. Our dedicated volunteers focus on scientific subjects and mathematics, working closely with schools and MMKN to ensure tailored support. Together, we continue our commitment to enhancing the educational journey of these young learners, fostering a brighter future.

We believe in empowering dreams and creating opportunities.
