Service Coordinator Hours

Office Hours (4-6 hours)

All Service Coordinators are expected to schedule 4-6 office hours in the CCSJ office. This is a time to be available for meetings with volunteers or other students, responding to emails, planning activities and reflections, communicating with partners, getting feedback from your supervisor and accomplishing tasks related to your job duties.

Community Service (2-6 hours)

Most Service Coordinators are expected to attend at least one day of service at their community partner site each week. In some positions, this expectation may be different depending on the programs coordinated by the position, the partner site and/or the frequency of the service programs.    

Supervision One-on-One Meetings (1 hour every/other week)

Each student will have regularly scheduled one-on-one meetings with his or her supervisor. For the first month of the semester, these meetings will be held every week and then, when bi-weekly reflections begin, the supervision meetings will be held every other week alternating with bi-weekly reflections. This is a time for feedback, mentoring and guidance on all aspects of the job, talking through challenges and discussing relevant justice issues. 

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. Staff Meetings are a time to grow as a team and a community so we can improve the quality and impact of our collective work, to share ideas, feedback and insight on relevant campus and community issues, to learn nuts and bolts for your job, to share information, to provide affirmation to one another and to be rejuvenated and re-energized.

Flexible Time (up to 6 hours)

The remaining hours in your working week are flexible time to work inside or outside of the office accomplishing any necessary tasks to ensure the smooth functioning of your programs and the tasks within your job description or assigned by your supervisor.

All final decisions about student hours resides with the individual supervisor. Any modifications to these guidelines must be approved by the supervisor with consultation of the associate Director.
