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.
