Josh Taylor, a student at the UIC – Chicago College of Urban Planning and Policy, will be mentoring high school males as they develop their leadership abilities and create community health initiatives in their school and neighborhood in Englewood. He seeks to raise $500 at this fundraiser to help with his larger fundraising goal of $3,000 that will cover the cost of providing the youth with healthy breakfasts, college text book scholarships, and an annual retreat.
The Schweitzer Fellowship is a year-long service learning program for graduate students in health-related professions who will design and implement innovative direct service projects aimed at improving the health and well-being of underserved Chicago area communities. Through their community projects and participation in a year-long program that includes mentoring support, monthly meetings, written reflection, and interprofessional collaboration, Schweitzer Fellows are developing the skills and confidence needed to become Leaders in Service—professionals who will remain dedicated to public service and to creating change.
In July 2014, the Schweitzer Fellows for Life network launched Summer Fest 2014 a year-long campaign to help support our current Fellows' projects. Each of the Fellows has created a "wish list" of supplies and resources that will help them realize their service project goals.
