• Community Relations

  • Midtown Initiatives

    Through a variety of programs run through the Student Affairs Office, students volunteer to give back to the Murray Hill community that surrounds the Beren Campus.

    Helping Hands

    Stern students are sent to local midtown public schools to lend an extra hand in overcrowded classrooms for students who need extra attention.


    Students are paired up with a senior citizen in the vicinity of Stern College and become a companion for the senior, visiting during the week and speaking to her or him regularly.

    YU Chesed Club

    In partnership with the Learning Leader's army of more than 8,000 volunteers who work in 500 schools throughout the five boroughs, students volunteer to dedicate two hours a week to tutoring students one-on-one in a variety of subjects including mathematics, social studies, reading and science. If you are able to commit two hours to this initiative, you can make a huge impact in a young person's life. Prior to being placed at a school, Learning Leaders will train every volunteer and provide the volunteer with the tools and resources needed to conduct successful tutoring sessions.
