Community Connections plans one-time volunteer events in the Greater Boston area, including hosting four days of service each year. This past year, one day of service was held in collaboration with 'DEIS Impact to serve at the nonprofit owned by this year’s 'DEIS Impact keynote speaker, Nadia Alawa. Community Connections also partners with Stanley and Plympton Elementary Schools to host two Family Nights. The Social Impact Fair is also organized by Community Connections, which is a career fair for Brandeis students interested in volunteering, interning, or working at local nonprofits.
