2021 Orientation: Virtual Internships

HUIYAO CHEN | BALTIMORE JOB HUNTERS SUPPORT GROUP Orientation has been a challenge to me in multiple different ways. The disclosing nature of the orientation itself and the way it interacts with my other life events have made it both especially challenging and unexpectedly full of love and support. I…

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.

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
