    Are you passionate about community service? Are you interested in meeting and connecting with new people? Are you ready to step up as a leader in your school, youth group or home community? Are you prepared to change the world?

    We are too.

    Brandeis University - named the #1 school in the country for student community service engagement - has been a center for service and social justice education for decades. At the Brandeis Service Corps, you'll have the opportunity to combine your love of service with hands-on volunteer projects and deep intellectual exploration into the issues facing communities in the Greater Boston area and throughout the country.

    You'll get a taste of life at a top-tier university while making meaningful personal connections with those whose lives are affected by homelessness, developmental disability, poverty, refugee status and other forms of need. Each day, you will be challenged and motivated while working together with teens from all over the world to make the community stronger.

    Service Corps provides the opportunity to earn up to 45 hours of community service credit while honing your leadership skills, gaining deeper understanding of yourself and your ability to help those in need and developing projects and ideas to bring change back home with you.

    Tuition: $3,300

    In the Brandeis tradition of offering academic access to all students, Service Corps seeks each year to provide a limited number of scholarships to outstanding applicants who otherwise might not be able to afford this exceptional opportunity.
