Center for Social Concern

Get Involved by Engaging and Strengthening our Communities

Looking to get involved and connect with our communities? You’ve come to the right place! Get involved and learn more now.

The Center for Social Concern is an office within the Homewood Student Affairs division of Johns Hopkins that is dedicated to volunteerism and community engagement. The Center 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.

25th Anniversary Celebration25th Anniversary

The Center for Social Concern is getting ready to celebrate its 25th Anniversary and will be kicking off our celebration in April 2017!

We would not have been able to reach such an accomplishment without our dedicated and supportive students, community partners, alumni, staff, and faculty. So, thank you!

As April 2017 approaches, we’ll keep you informed of our celebratory events and festivities, so make sure you continue to check back on our website for any updates!

In the meantime, we hope all JHU students get involved and engage this year with our  many wonderful community partners in our Baltimore Community! Read more below about how to get involved.

  • If you are an upperclassman new to the CSC and looking for a new experience that will be fun and impactful, you’ve come to the right place.
  • If you are already active at the CSC, help us spread the word and get students involved and working with you! Tell them about your experiences and which programs have impacted you the most.
