2019 Orientation: Nonprofit Management

SOFIA CUENCA | CENTRAL BALTIMORE PARTNERSHIP Walking through the Penn-North neighborhood I couldn’t help but notice the attention our mere presence was getting. The looks, the stares, the assurance from community residents that we were “safe,” all seemed to emphasize the idea that we, six undergraduate students from Johns Hopkins,…

2018 Week 6: Nonprofit Management

EMMA MAXWELL | BALTIMORE CORPS So it’s officially reached the point in the summer where I’m getting really sad about having to leave Baltimore Corps. We were joking in the office today that there’s something called “Baltimore Corps years” (like dog years), where each month you spend with the organization…

2018 Week 5: Nonprofit Management

EMMA MAXWELL | BALTIMORE CORPS I have never felt as ready for the weekend as I did at the end of this week. Turns out juggling the responsibilities of three other people plus your own internship projects is not as easy as I expected. As any Hopkins student (or really…

2018 Week 4: Nonprofit Management

EMMA MAXWELL | BALTIMORE CORPS This week went from 0 to 60 real quick. Headed into Monday, my workload was dwindling a bit and I had started to get a little apprehensive about stretching my projects for the remaining four weeks. After this week, though, my fears have definitely been…

2018 Week 1: Nonprofit Management

EMMA MAXWELL | BALTIMORE CORPS On my very first day going to work, I got on my MTA bus (shoutout route 22) and settled into my seat, already trying to guess what I’d be doing at work and worrying about whether I packed enough food for lunch (I didn’t). For…

2018 Orientation: Nonprofit Management

EMMA MAXWELL | BALTIMORE CORPS Overall I found orientation to be an incredibly valuable experience, but I have to admit that as a rising senior who is interested in pursuing a career in the nonprofit sector post-graduation, the speakers we heard from definitely provoked more than a bit of stress….

2017 Week Five: Nonprofit Management

NINA KRAUSS | FUSION PARTNERSHIPS, INC. At CIIP orientation we were told that in Baltimore, a beverage consisting of half ice tea and half lemonade is called “half and half.” This left me with a burning question that, this week, I finally posed to everyone from Fusion within earshot- “Ok,…
