This break, we will be exploring food systems, security, and justice at different levels in our communities. We will be staying at Brandeis and volunteering at different organizations such as Community Servings, a non-profit dedicated to providing healthy and nutritious meals to chronically and critically ill individuals and their families, and the Community Harvest Project, a community farm. We will also be hearing from distinguished Brandeis professors regarding these topics to further our understanding. 

The application will close January 30th at 12AM (midnight).

Join the English Language Learning Initiative!
The English Language Learning Initiative (ELLi) is a service club here at Brandeis where students are paired with staff (who work at Sodexo or in custodial services) to tutor them in English as their second language. No tutoring or foreign language experience is necessary, it is low time commitment, based on your schedule, and is a great way to get involved on campus and give back directly to the community!
