Student Voices

“Every volunteer experience has expanded my passion for social justice and enabled me to become an advocate for international justice… By volunteering at various organizations, I adopted an important philosophy, “Listen, Learn, and Respond.” By following this philosophy, I helped make small and large differences in the lives of individuals that are often ignored by society.” ~Heather Yoon '15

"Putting a smile on the faces of those I help is the reason I keep on giving." ~Sabrina Libretti '15

"Volunteers know when to help others succeed." ~Janice Vazquez '15

Save the date for the 9th annual Brandeis Celebration of Service on Monday, April 23, 2018 evening in the Faculty Club


The Department of Community Service will honor the hard work and service that all of our Brandeis members and partners have done this year. We invite students, faculty, staff, and partners who have engaged with the Waltham community to come share their stories, meet others involved in service, and celebrate our commitment to engaging our community! Join us for a Commitment to Service awards ceremony, live music, delicious hors d’oeuvres, guest speakers, and more! Kosher and vegetarian options will be available.  


We encourage all students to invite their faculty, staff, peers, and partners to celebration their dedication to our community. This is a truly wonderful event that marks an important tradition on our campus. 


Keep an eye out for a Facebook event early in the Spring semester.


The Celebration of Service is co-sponsored by the Department of Community Service and the Waltham Group.
