FWD sponsors student and community activities aimed at strengthening school pride, creating bonds among the student body, and creating a support system.

Medicine Education & Development for Low Income Families Everywhere (MEDLIFE) is a non-profit organization working with Latin American and African partners in low-income communities to improve access to medicine and health and medical and health education. MEDLIFE on-campus chapters in school across the US raise support and awareness and have the opportunity to participate in service-learning projects in communities where MEDLIFE has established partnerships.
