Bi-Weekly Small Group Reflections (1 hour every other week)

All Student Staff in CCSJ participate in biweekly small group reflections focused on racial justice. These reflections are facilitated by full-time staff members and follow a curriculum designed to help students understand the role of systemic racism in our society and the implications for our work as Service Coordinators in Baltimore City.

Staff Meetings (1 hour every week)

Student Staff meetings are scheduled, based on the staff class schedules each semester, for one hour each week, between the hours of 9-5pm, Monday-Friday.
