The Waltham Group, a student-led community service organization, is the primary student service outreach at Brandeis University. The Waltham Group was founded in 1966 in response to student activism and in recognition of the university's responsibility to be engaged in the community. Hundreds of students volunteer each year through the Waltham Group, which serves as a center for service and advocacy.
Our programs run based on the Brandeis academic calendar. Most programs begin at the end of September and run through the end of November. Programs begin again starting the end of January and runs through the end of April. We follow most of the Waltham Public School breaks. Each program varies in their exact start and end dates, so please contact the specific program to find out individual timelines.
Our programs are at no charge to members of the local Waltham community. We strive to meet all needs and are constantly trying to grow and change. Please contact us with any questions or comments you have. We look forward to working with you soon!
