About the CSC The Center for Social Concern fosters a lifelong commitment to active citizenship by integrating education, action, and reflection. We believe that EDUCATION is crucial for ethical community engagement. We believe it’s important to take ACTION in the lives of our communities. We believe that participating in REFLECTION and discovery is transformative to every students' career at Hopkins and beyond.
In order to achieve this mission, we have developed programming that combines education, action, and reflection for a truly transformative experience. We offer a plethora of experiences that will fit your interest, ranging from one-on-one tutoring sessions with Baltimore City School students to cleaning up a community garden to participating in a year-long fellowship program, and many more. Through all of these experiences, you’ll gain a better understanding of Baltimore neighborhoods, local initiatives, culture, and leave with a deeper appreciation of your new home and community. You’ll also create meaningful friendships with fellow students who share similar passions for civic engagement, leadership, and volunteer work.
