All Volunteer Training

Thank you for participating in Brandeis community engagement programming. The All Volunteer Training (AVT) provides student volunteers with a one-stop shop for all forms and tools needed to begin volunteering, including information on volunteer expectations, risk management, self-care resources, best practices, and additional community engagement leadership opportunities. Volunteers will also learn more about the diversity, strengths, history, and needs of the Waltham community through our one of a kind Waltham: The You Know workshop. The goal of this program is to provide volunteers with information relevant to all Brandeis student volunteers, supplement program-specific volunteer trainings, and best prepare students for their work and engagement in the community. As a part of the training, students are asked to read through the information, complete the required volunteer forms, and respond to the questions embedded throughout the training. All Volunteer Training is mandatory for all volunteers engaging with the community while at Brandeis.

Please complete the All Volunteer Training linked here at your own pace and get ready to volunteer! We will also be offering an in-person All Volunteer Training on Thursday, September 30th at 7:00 PM in the SCC Multi-purpose Room. Volunteers can either participate in the virtual experience on their own, or attend the in-person workshop led by members of the Department of Community Service team. Register here if you'd like to attend the in-person workshop. For any questions or concerns please reach out to the Community Engagement Ambassador for Training and Volunteer Retention at ceap@brandeis.edu.
