Community Engagement at NYU Florence

NYU Florence offers students the option to integrate an experiential learning opportunity and become an active participant in the Florentine community through various off campus volunteer activities. Placements vary based upon the student’s availability, academic interests and language skill level.

Students can participate in Community Engagement in two ways:

  • You can choose a short-term, large-scale, single day event.
  • You can choose a sustained weekly interaction with a local school, or nonprofit association.

Some students choose to do both! The experience is well worth it!.
