Brown Urban Education Initiative: Ready to learn

Aaron Jennings, MSW '09, plans a career dedicated to improving educational achievement for at-risk youth. As a student, he developed and implemented a dropout prevention program while participating in a wide range of student government and community service activities. Aaron received support from the endowed Joseph H. & Florence A. Roblee Social Service Scholarship and the annual Kathryn M. Buder Scholarship. "They made it possible for me to take advantage of all the opportunities the Brown School has to offer."

The Brown School’s Urban Education Initiative promotes K–12 student success by forging community connections and focusing on the whole child.
