How Do I Find a Community Partner?

In order for a Community-based Learning course to be successful, a strong community partner is needed. It is this organization that will guide students' work in the community when the course instructor is not present. Community partners are often schools, government agencies, or registered nonprofit organizations such as a museum, neighborhood center, advocacy group, or service provider.

Because of our history of outreach to Baltimore through student volunteer efforts, the Cetner for Social Concern is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between campus and community. Our Assistant Director, Gia Grier McGinnis, would be happy to work with you to find the perfect community partner. She can be reached at 410-516-6773 or
