New Documentary Celebrates Feinstein Leaders

Alan Shawn Feinstein, founder of the Feinstein Foundation and nationally-known Rhode Island philanthropist and humanitarian, is the subject of a new documentary, Feinstein Leaders of Tomorrow.

His tireless crusade to inspire leadership and promote community service among youth has made an indelible impact on American education and the field of public service. From his Feinstein Junior Scholars good deeds program in elementary and middle schools, to establishing college and university areas of study to end world hunger, as well as degree programs in community service, Mr. Feinstein’s generosity and energy are legendary.

The 30-minute Feinstein Leaders of Tomorrow debuts Sunday, February 2 at 10 a.m. on Rhode Island PBS, with the following encore broadcasts on Learn:
