Kids Connection

Kids Connection sends Brandeis volunteers to local non-profit organizations that work with youth. Currently, Brandeis students volunteer with the Boys and Girls Club, the YMCA after school program at Stanley Elementary, and the Prospect Hill Community Center Teen Program. The Boys and Girls Club serves youth ages 6-18 and aims to inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential. The YMCA after school program at Stanley Elementary provides a safe and supervised environment for recreation, socialization, and education for children from kindergarten to fifth grade. At the Prospect Hill Community Center Teen Program, our volunteers can mentor or tutor teens in middle and high school. Volunteers run and assist with programs such as arts & crafts, science experiments, sports, and more!
