Center for Social Concern


Center for Social Concern

The Center for Social Concern emphasizes the value of service with others. Volunteers and community members enter into an educational process where both benefit from the interaction, and reciprocal learning is the common ground for all of our initiatives. Our programs and efforts are striving to create a “better community” in and around the Johns Hopkins campus.

A Note about PDOS Cancellation:

Dear Johns Hopkins Community:

We know many of you throughout the university have volunteered your time to participate in the President’s Day of Service scheduled for this Saturday, October 3, 2015.  Your engagement in this effort and with our larger Baltimore community is reflective of the university’s deep commitment to our city.

Unfortunately, in light of the weather forecast and the State of Emergency issued by Governor Hogan, we have made the decision to postpone Saturday’s activities.  This decision is made with an abundance of caution in order to ensure the safety of both volunteers and staff members at the various sites planned for the day.  As Governor Hogan said, “While we’re hoping for the best, we’re preparing for the worst.”

We will reschedule the President’s Day of Service for this spring and will inform you of the new date as soon as possible.
