#EnAcción is a community outreach program for young professionals committed with local communities’ empowerment and development. Throughout the year, we engage groups in community work.

 

The fellowship

The #EnAcción community fellows work on a social project that accelerates a social initiative within the selected population. These projects are supervised directly by community leaders or NGOs that foster a community’s self-sustainability.

The fellowship raises awareness about social, economic and environmental issues surrounding communities in Puerto Rico, prepares young professionals for community work, and builds a network of like-minded peers.
