Community Bulletin

The Center for Social Concern’s Community Bulletin is a place where we will be sharing individual volunteer opportunities and community-related events. The purpose of this page is to:

  • provide individual volunteer and year of service opportunities for those looking to get involved.
  • share community-related events.
  • remind you of important deadlines that may be of interest to you.

We are working with our community partners and local agencies to create this page that we hope can become a valuable resource for the Hopkins and local communities. These agencies have identified themselves as having needs with varying levels of commitment and/or expertise, so check out the opportunities below and contact them directly for more information. If you’re interested in submitting a post for the Community Bulletin, click the button and submit the form below.

Submit Volunteer Opportunity and Event Form

If you are a community partner or a local organization who needs help promoting an event, have a resource that you think may benefit our community, or perhaps you are looking for some volunteers to lend a helping hand at your organization, please complete our Volunteer Opportunity and Event Form. A staff member will follow up with you within approximately 2-3 business days to help you post your opportunity on this page. During longer term partnerships, the Center for Social Concern may ask you to submit a community partnership application.

Submit Volunteer Opportunity and Event Form

If you have any questions, please email volunteer@jhu.edu. We look forward to your partnership and thank you for your work with our community!

Students looking to get involved or volunteer on a more consistent schedule, can always get involved with a CSC program instead. The Community Bulletin will constantly be changing and updated as we learn of new opportunities. Still have questions? Contact volunteer@jhu.edu or (410) 516-4777.
