The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship
June 17, 2011
The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship has allowed me to see how imaginative and passionate that students can be, when working with people in need. Their range of projects has included dental health in children with disabilities, community guides for discharged psychiatric patients, nutrition counseling for teen mothers...The list of projects is just remarkable. The Schweitzer fellows also develop leadership, management, and real community engagement skills.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
witnessing the impact these students have in their projects and visiting health fairs and community events that they coordinate.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
find a way to fund more fellows, so that the amazing ripple effect of their work continues to spread and involve more underserved populations
Board Member & I work on the Board, interviewing applicants, looking for funding, and helping with strategic decisions.
