Baltimore Corps Fellowship Program
Our primary objective at Baltimore Corps is to build equitable talent pipelines into Baltimore's leadership, particularly throughout the social sector. We need more than a generation of leaders whose identities and experiences align with the communities they serve. That's step one. The truth is, progress entails more than building more inclusive avenues into our city's systems of influence. It also requires interrogating, challenging and fundamentally changing the way those systems operate. The Baltimore Corps Fellowship, our flagship program, works toward this ideal. Each year, we recruit professionals from around the city, around the region, and around the country to work directly with the leaders at the forefront of Baltimore's most impactful work. We place our Fellows with partner organizations in the nonprofit, public and private sectors to effect population-level change across focus areas including education, public health, and workforce development. Beyond building capacity in individual organizations, Baltimore Corps Fellows come together over the course of an intensive yearlong program designed to:Increase understanding of equity and racial justice, and provide Fellows with the resources, training, and tools to better combat inequity and disrupt structural racism;Support individual growth by providing customized opportunities and resources to support each Fellow's professional development; andCreate a lasting and collaborative network among Fellows and city leaders, as well as clear avenues to drive change during and after the Fellowship year.
Talent Acquisition, Minority-Focused
Baltimore Corps connects talent to opportunity in one of America’s greatest cities. We do this by organizing and running a number of programs in Baltimore. Through the Baltimore Corps Fellowship, we recruit highly talented, mission-driven professionals and connect them to cause leaders to work full time scaling social impact. Through our Place for Purpose program, we connect talent to opportunity outside of our Fellowship structure. Lastly, through our Elevation Awards program, we provide capital and development support to aspiring social entrepreneurs in Baltimore. Our mission is to invest in strong leadership and double down on solutions that work—if we do that, we can make Baltimore the social change capital of the nation.
