Promoting Education through Youth Leadership
We provide support, intervention and guidance to students facing adversity as they deal with transitional periods throughout high school.
BU/LPP’s full-time staff members are located in each participating school district to work one-on-one with identified students to promote personal and academic growth.
Binghamton University students serve as tutors, mentors and interns, supporting full-time staff members and completing hundreds of volunteer hours each and every semester.
Schools We Work With
Summer of Service Learning
The Liberty CITY (Community Improvement Through Youth) Project brings students from Binghamton and Union-Endicott High Schools together to identify youth issues within their schools and communities. These Teen Leaders create solutions for identified issues and work hard throughout the school year to plan activities to keep younger students engaged, active and safe during the summer.
Community Mosaics and Liberty Partnerships
For three years, BU/LPP has led students from Susquehanna Valley High School and Owego Free Academy to spend countless hours each summer working on community mosaics. In partnership with Jablon Studios, students create “masterpieces” around their communities.
LPP is built upon the core values of community service, civic duty, and leadership. This foundation is best represented by a partnership between Susquehanna Valley and Owego students, Impact Project, and Jim Willard. For three years, this group has completed various community service projects throughout the Southern Tier, assisting neighbors in need and actively rebuilding their communities.
