Our mission is not only to provide community service opportunities for the youth of lawrence, but to give students the chance to engaged in projects and become leaders.In the past the Humanitarian Club, was known to help however needed support and how the club devotes their time doing fundraisers to raise money for whomever and whatever needed funds. Members gave back to the community and began a chain reaction in the process, “Saving the World One Step at a Time.” Fundraisers are held throughout the year to advance various charities. The Humanitarian Club raises the money needed to participate in many local events that ask for support. In example members have volunteered in the community by attending the Walk for Animals, the Spicket River Cleanup, the Canned Food Drive, Jeans for Teens, and other activities that do not hold a title such as home fires. The real mission is to assist anyone through their troubles or situations in any way possible. The Humanitarian Club will continue efforts to attract and increase student participation in community based after school activities in Lawrence, a low income and diverse urban environmental justice community.
