On selected afternoons at the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, you might find some students playing hopscotch, studying algebra or geography, or running freely in front of Levering Hall. No, it's not a snow day—it's the Tutorial Project, an afterschool tutoring program that brings Baltimore City elementary school students to campus and pairs them with current Johns Hopkins students. As part of this popular program, which runs under the university's Center for Social Concern, tutors are trained and provide one-on-one help in different subjects.
The Baltimore Scholars is just one example of Johns Hopkins University's commitment to the surrounding Baltimore community. Follow the links below to learn about some of our other programs and outreach efforts.
