    Are you ready to step up as a leader in your school, youth group or home community? Do you want to make positive social change in the face of structural inequality? Are you prepared to change the world?

    Let’s go!

    As the #1 school in the country for student community service engagement, Brandeis University centers its foundation on social justice and service since its inception! At Brandeis Service Leadership, you’ll have the opportunity to combine your love for service with hands-on volunteer projects and deep intellectual exploration into the issues facing communities in the Greater Boston area and beyond.

    While getting a taste of college at a top-tier university and creating meaningful relationships with your fellow peers, you will be able to make deep connections with those whose lives are affected by transgenerational homelessness and poverty, developmental disability, refugee and immigration status, and other forms of need. Each day, you will be challenged and motivated while working together with teens from all over the world to make the community stronger.

    Earn up to 45 hours of community service credit while honing your leadership skills, gaining deeper understanding of yourself and your ability to help those in need and developing projects and ideas to bring change back home with you.

    Program Fee: $3,550

    In the Brandeis tradition of offering academic access to all students, Service Leadership seeks each year to provide a limited number of scholarships to outstanding applicants who otherwise might not be able to afford this exceptional opportunity.
