Leah Manangan (BA in Human Services, 2010)


Leah received the 2010 CPCS Community Service Award for her role in designing and implementing a community service project for young people living near the university on the Columbia Point Peninsula. She expanded the Harbor Point Tutoring Project, a peer tutoring program, and served as liaison between the college and the Harbor Point Youth Center. She also provided outreach to parents and teachers at the Paul A. Dever Public School and was instrumental in developing youth-to-campus programs that strengthened pathways to higher education for underserved young people. These programs are part of a unique collaboration—between UMass Boston, the Harbor Point Community Task Force, and Corcoran Mullins Jennison, Inc.—that fosters a high-quality learning and living environment on Columbia Point.
