The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship - New Orleans relies entirely on grants and charitable contributions from people like you to fulfill our mission of addressing health disparities by developing Leaders in Service.
By supporting ASF New Orleans, you make a two-fold difference:
1. Cultivating community leaders who will work in health and human service fields serving vulnerable populations
2. Immediate change in the lives of individuals and communities where Fellows conduct year-long service projects
Since 2007 we have mentored 120 alumni and 8 current student leaders. And they, in turn, have carried out over 24,000 hours of community service through yearlong, high-impact service projects that meet the health needs of underserved communities in the Greater New Orleans area. When the initial service year ends for the Schweitzer Fellows, the difference they’re making doesn’t: they carry on their commitment to meeting the health needs of underserved people as members of the Schweitzer Fellows for Life alumni network, now over 4,000 strong.
These Fellows are Dr. Albert Schweitzer’s living legacy. Help them improve the health of vulnerable communities with your tax-deductible donation
