In 2017, the Landis Center for Community Engagement established a partnership with The Leadership Center (TLC) in Honduras as part of its Alternative School Break (ASB) program. TLC offers 2-3 year academic and residency programs for approximately 30 young women from diverse backgrounds and locations throughout Honduras. The Leadership Center teaches English, leadership, community development, business and entrepreneurship as well as other liberal arts courses.

Each year, a group of 12 students and 2 learning partners go to TLC as part of the ASB program. On this trip students help develop sustainable systems on the TLC campus and work on English lessons with the young women. Past projects include sustainable agriculture, bridge construction, and solar panels.
