Community Action Projects

Participants in the Riley Institute’s Diversity Leaders Initiative program work together in small, cross-sector groups to respond to real challenges and opportunities in their communities through service projects. Through the development of these projects, participants strengthen their bonds with classmates and deepen relationships with their communities.

Riley Fellows have implemented nearly 300 community action projects across the state. Examples include the creation of an ongoing summer camp for disadvantaged youth, a luggage drive for children in foster care, and the unveiling of a food truck that serves free, nutritionally balanced meals to children during the summer months.
