SUNY Stands with Puerto Rico

Student experience

SUNY is proud to partner with Governor Andrew Cuomo to offer students a unique and rewarding service learning opportunity to support his NY Stands with Puerto Rico Recovery and Rebuilding Initiative. New York State is mobilizing students from SUNY and CUNY to work through non-profit organizations that are aiding in the reconstruction and revitalization efforts of communities across the island damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria. In the coming weeks, SUNY will launch a new application for student experiences for 2019.

Submitting an application does not guarantee acceptance as space will be limited. However, SUNY will work to place as many remaining applicants in similar service opportunities through additional non-profit organizations as they become available.

All programs will be hands-on service learning experiences that likely require physical work in a tropical climate. Proper precautions and safety measures will be taken, and students will work under the supervision of faculty and staff from SUNY and the partner non-profit organizations.
