This week, Baltimore Corps launched the Baltimore City Mayoral Fellowship, designed to match undergraduate and graduate students interested in public service with projects that focus on public policy issues and challenges that matter most to Baltimore's residents.
“Over the past five years, Baltimore Corps has been proud to be a key part of developing and retaining diverse leaders committed to putting Baltimore first, advancing equity and racial justice, and increasing social sector effectiveness,” said Baltimore Corps President & CEO Fagan Harris. “We’re pleased to be expanding our partnership with the City to facilitate the Mayoral Fellowship, through which Fellows gain a unique insight into the operations of city government and have the opportunity to substantively contribute to policies that impact Baltimore residents and communities,”
Through previous and current placements, members of the Baltimore Corps network have played key roles in implementing the consent decree, addressing the opioid crisis, providing programming for Baltimore City Public School students, and more. Over the course of a 10-week period, Mayoral Fellows will have the opportunity, under the direction of senior-level government officials, to work on projects based on the Mayoral Fellow’s background and interests, as well as the needs of the agencies and departments.
