Volunteer Agreement

I pledge to strive to be a positive change agent in my community and have altruistic goals to embrace the mission and pillars of Brandeis University. As a Brandeis volunteer, I acknowledge that while engaging in community service initiatives and projects, I am an agent of the institution and will positively represent the University to the best of my ability. I pledge not to participate in activities that may make others feel unsafe, disrespected, intimidated, or as though their democratic rights are being infringed upon. I agree to fill out a volunteer waiver which is required to engage in all University affiliated co-curricular community service. I understand that reflection is a key component of my community engagement and personal development and will capitalize on both structured and personal opportunities to participate. I am aware that the Department of Community Service staff is available to support my civic and community engagement endeavors and will utilize their resources shall a necessary occasion arise. I understand that I am to be truthful and honest in my submission of all service hours into the commitment to service award hours tracking system.
