Encounters at Brandeis give high school students the chance to explore and be challenged by new ideas, discover fresh forms of self-expression, and develop deep friendships - all within an inclusive Jewish community situated on the campus of Brandeis University. Brandeis is currently offering three residential summer programs for high school students, as well as year-round online learning courses.
BIMA at Brandeis University provides emerging artists with the opportunity to practice their craft daily and explore new disciplines, to receive personal mentoring from working artists, and to extend the boundaries of their artistic - and personal - expression. Learn more about who you are as an individual, artist, and Jew, and be a part of a deeply creative, collaborative community. Summer 2012: July 4 to August 2
Genesis at Brandeis University connects high school students with a passion for academic exploration with professionals who have dedicated their lives to the study and real-world practice of social entrepreneurship, religion, law, journalism, and technology. Explore new perspectives, develop and strengthen your voice, pursue your interests within a dynamic community, and discover how Judaism informs the way you see and approach every part of your world. Summer 2012: July 4 to August 2
Impact Boston, a two week program offered in collaboration with BBYO, gives high school students an immersive service learning experience focused on human relationships as the key to creating a better society. Work closely with people at a Boston area nonprofit and experience life through the eyes of individuals who are living with challenges, and meet people who will change your life and inspire you to make a real difference in your own community and beyond. Impact Boston participants are also eligible to extend their summer at Brandeis by attending either of Brandeis University’s other two summer programs that take place immediately following Impact Boston, BIMA and Genesis. Summer 2012 Dates: Session 1: June 24 - July 5. Session 2: July 9 - July 20.
Online learning opportunities brings the Encounters experience to you. Brandeis offers an increasing selection of academic and artistic online courses to challenge and inspire you.
