Baltimore Corps Fellowship
Is it for you?
The Baltimore Corps seeks to recruit young professionals to build pathways to leadership positions within the Baltimore City community, particularly in the social sector. The program’s underlying mission is social justice and racial equity for everyone in Baltimore City. During the year-long appointment, on a rolling basis, fellows work in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors to effect population-level change across focus areas, including education, public health, and workforce development. The fellowship provides professional development to enrich the work experience through retreats, networking events, one-on-one mentoring, leadership seminars, community dinners, and feedback designed to support each Fellow’s professional and personal growth.
For those interested in this cohort experience and professional development, you may submit an application for a fellowship and to be matched to an employer, or if you have employment already, for a fellowship only.
