Volunteers needed in Baltimore City schools

Johns Hopkins Takes Time for Schools provides eligible university employees with up to two paid days of leave per fiscal year to volunteer with a Baltimore City Public School. While you are welcome to seek out opportunities on your own, here are two opportunities that may interest you.

2015 Read Across America Day Johns Hopkins University and United Way of Central Maryland have a strong partnership not only with the annual United Way campaign but also for engagement opportunities year-round. One of these opportunities is national Read Across America Day, taking place on Monday, March 2. To honor Dr. Seuss and celebrate his birthday, United Way is recruiting volunteers to read The Cat in The Hat and engage young students in a fun corresponding activity. Events will be held at schools throughout Maryland, but please note, that if you opt to use TTFS, it must be with a Baltimore City public school. To register or for more information, click here.

Public Health Professionals Needed at City Neighbors Hamilton Elementary School City Neighbors Hamilton Elementary School is in search of volunteers to help teach the 4th and 5th grade students about the history of public health and what public health professionals do as the students work on a unit about infectious disease. Volunteers are needed for one or two 90-minute sessions during the school day (dates TBD based on volunteer's availability). If you are interested or would like more information, contact Meg Stoltzfus at mstoltz1@jhu.edu or 410-530-6629.
