About Wheelock College and the
Passion for Action Leadership Award Dinner
Passion for Action LogoFor more than 125 years, Wheelock College has been known as an institution with an important public mission: to improve the lives of children and families. Founded by pioneering educator Lucy Wheelock, Wheelock College offers nationally and internationally recognized undergraduate and graduate programs to educate and inspire future social justice advocates-teachers, social workers, and juvenile justice and child life practitioners-to respond to the needs of children and families in the diverse communities in which they live, whether here or abroad. Wheelock students engage in service learning and field practice and gain multicultural perspectives which further enhance their academic and life preparation.

The Passion for Action events celebrate the spirit of Wheelock, our students, faculty, alumni, and all those who support our vibrant mission. The Leadership Award Dinner supports the Passion for Action Scholarship Program, which is the largest scholarship program at the College. These four-year scholarships are given to Greater Boston-area students who, as high school students, have already demonstrated a compelling commitment to community service. Since its inception in 2008, 35 students have benefitted from this program.
