The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship
June 15, 2011

I was a Albert Schweitzer Fellow in 2008-2009 volunteering as part of the Boston Fellows.

The key to the Schweitzer Fellowship's success is organization and a focus of reflection, enabling people to serve in more effective ways. They are a well-run non-profit from the top down and as such, provide a forum for service and learning about that service so that the delivery of programs improves iteratively. Their impact goes beyond the direct service provided—they work to educate a league of Fellows, investing in their future potential to make change.

I am thankful and was honored to have been a part of the Schweitzer Fellowship program.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my role as a Schweitzer Fellow and by working as a manager of the free health clinic that I helped open.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide a forum for non-fellows to consult the organization just as Fellows do.
