Baltimore First

Baltimore First supports students in their journey to better understand our city and their place in it. We hope you will consider joining us!


Baltimore First is the Center for Social Concern’s (CSC) individualized direct service and volunteering program. Committed to fostering sustainable relationships with Baltimore-based community organizations, Baltimore First provides Service Partners with consistent and regularly scheduled volunteers throughout the course of a full academic year. In addition to their volunteer responsibilities, students are required to attend educational workshops, participate in critical reflection sessions, and engage with other community-building activities both on and off campus. Baltimore First uniquely advances the CSC’s mission by providing accessible opportunities for Hopkins students in the earlier stages of their journey to responsibly engage with Baltimore City and build meaningful relationships with their fellow volunteers.
