– The Bucknell Brigade is a unique project that has enlisted over 600 volunteers from our university to be a part of community-building and experiential education. Since 1999, volunteers from the university have been working to serve others and learn from community development efforts by traveling to Nicaragua. Volunteers who participate in this service-learning project travel to Nueva Vida, Nicaragua, to help with the improvement of the buildings and assist at the health clinic which serves an impoverished community.

Staff and students interested in completing an application to travel with either the January or March delegation are advised to attend one of the sessions listed below where you will hear from veterans of previous trips and learn the expectations of Brigadistas. At this meeting you may also ask any questions you may have. The deadline to apply for the 2018 trips is Monday, September 25 by 4pm. Join us to find out if this experience is for you.

The Bucknell Brigade Information Sessions will be held;
¬ Tuesday, September 5 at 7 pm, in the Center Room 256 in the Langone Center
¬ Thursday, September 7 at 12 noon, in the LC Forum, Room 272
¬ Sunday, September 17 at 7 pm, in the Bertrand Library, Traditional Reading Room 213.

-The Lewisburg Community Garden depends on volunteers for its operation. During the fall, the Garden hosts open volunteer hours every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. – consider volunteering alone, or with a group of your friends. Please dress appropriately for working outside (closed-toe shoes, hat, sunscreen, clothes that can get dirty), and bring a water bottle. Gloves and gardening tools will be provided. Volunteers are welcome to come and go as their schedule allows – it is not necessary to stay the entire time, and any help is appreciated! The garden is located on the Southeast Corner of the North Water Street and St. Anthony’s Street intersection, near Wolfe Field and the Street of Shops.
Please contact  Paula at pjc026@bucknell.edu with questions, or to sign up to volunteer!
