- Social Innovation Fellowship
Love in Action is a 16-20 student tutoring organization that is the service sector of Brown University's Reformed University Fellowship. For the last couple of years, LIA has worked especially to serve the Liberian community in Providence, meeting for 2-3 hours every Saturday morning to provide academic tutoring to kids in grades 2-8 in primarily math and English. My project through the CV Starr Fellowship is to strengthen and improve this program in order to better serve the needs of the Liberian community. Though we are currently a small, relatively new organization, I hope that by connecting with and learning from other organizations, LIA can become a more effective, sustainable, and beneficial resource for the Liberians in Providence.
