Community Engagement: An Important Part of Work-Life Effectiveness

Giving back to the community can be immensely rewarding, leading to a more fulfilling life. Engagement might come in the form of making a financial contribution to a cause that is important to an employee, volunteering time at an organization, or providing an in-kind donation to benefit families in need. The Office of Work, Life and Engagement sponsors several programs that provide faculty and staff a diverse range of opportunities to give back, particularly to the communities surrounding Johns Hopkins campuses in Baltimore. Programs include the Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund, the Adopt-a-Family/Adopt-a-Senior holiday program, and Johns Hopkins Takes Time for Baltimore. This workshop presents details about these and other community outreach opportunities that are available to both individual and departmental participation.

Wednesday, Oct. 25, Keswick, noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, East Baltimore, noon to 1 p.m.

The Johns Hopkins Shuttle makes frequent runs between campuses. For more information on shuttle schedules, visit the Transportation Services website.
