In Community Interns Federal Work Study Program

Overview

Through In Community Interns, the Center for Social Concern will place ten Federal Work Study eligible JHU undergraduates with our community partners in Baltimore City, where they will work for 5 hours per week. Students will also participate in bi-weekly 1 ½ hour training and reflection sessions with the CSC and members of the In Community cohort.

NOTE: You may express preference in a position on the application, however there is no guarantee of a position with an organization.

Expectations and Requirements

Undergraduates of all majors are eligible to apply. All positions require a full Federal Work Study award of $2700. Accepted candidates will be compensated $12/hour and will be required to work 5 hours each week with the partner, as well as participating in bi-weekly 1 ½ hour training and reflection sessions with the CSC and members of the In Community cohort. Trainings will focus on CSC core areas of Civic Engagement, Baltimore history and social issues, Active Citizenship, and Cultural Humility.

The CSC will do the hiring, process payroll, conduct trainings, and facilitate regular check-ins with interns and their site supervisors. The work will be performed virtually with our community partner sites until further notice due to public health guidelines.
