Nicole Raucci, a student in DePaul University’s Master’s Entry to Nursing Practice Program, will be providing seniors with individualized mentorship and group workshops to assist them in the identification and fulfillment of goals related to health maintenance. She seeks to raise $500 to compensate translators for their services, cover the cost of materials to create interactive learning modules for the seniors, and fund group fitness, nutrition, and mental health workshops.
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.
