Get Involved.  Stay Engaged

All summer, we have been working to develop ways to best support our partners and programs virtually. Learn about the programs we have created or altered to be delivered remotely.  We’re excited to share various online options this semester:
 

BMORE ENGAGED – CCSJ’S NEWEST PROGRAM

bmore engaged part 2

 

Join a peer-led, semester cohort to explore a specific justice topic in community with others. Be challenged to reflect deeply and transform your learning into advocacy and social action.

WHAT IS BMORE ENGAGED: Bmore Engaged combines personal learning exercises with alternating Zoom cohort sessions to unpack your learning and share your experience with others. We invite you to engage with your head (intellectually), heart (relationally), spirit (values) and hands (through action) to stay connected and build community.

WHAT TOPICS WILL BE COVERED: Justice Topics: Race & Racism, Education & Youth Development, Environmental Justice, Civic Engagement, Queer Identities, Workforce & Employment, Immigration & Migration, Food Access

WHY: An opportunity to remain engaged in community during our virtual semester.

WHEN: This is a 10-week program that includes six 1-hour peer-facilitated group Zoom sessions.

HOW:  REGISTER ONLINE by Thursday, September 10th at 11:59PM.

 

 

LOYOLAVOTES

 

Loyolavotes

 

Learn about LoyolaVotes and commit to being civically engaged this semester. Loyola University Maryland is among 700+ institutions across the country participating in the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge. Join us in increasing voter registration and voter engagement.

 

SERVICE-LEARNING

 

If you are taking a class with a service-learning option, this is a great way to engage with the community and connect your experience with the course content you’re learning. Ask your faculty for more information! If not this semester, register for a service-learning course next semester.

 

 

TUTORING

 

Many of our local education partners are seeking virtual tutoring support. Because it involves working with students under 18, it requires that folks are fingerprinted. We are seeking students who:

 

Have previously been fingerprinted by Baltimore City Public Schools in the past two years (2019 or 2020).

 

OR

Live locally in or near Baltimore and can go, in person, to get fingerprinted.

 

If you fit this description and are interested in supporting virtual tutoring, please contact Elise Gower: elgower@loyola.edu.

 

WORK STUDY

 

If you are work-study eligible, we are seeking students to support our partners’ virtual tutoring requests. Again, the fingerprinting requirements, above, are necessary.
If interested in applying, visit the link below:

The same fingerprinting requirements, described in the TUTORING section above, are a qualification. 

 

If you have any questions, please contact Gerald Ford @ gtford@loyola.edu

TRADITIONAL SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

 

When it is safe to do so, CCSJ will return to offering in-person opportunities, CCSJ will return to offering  in person opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, alumni, and Loyola employees to engage in community, service, and justice.  Through volunteering one time, or each week, through participating in an immersion experience with Baltimore neighbors or with farm workers in Florida, through a service-learning course, or through an advocacy initiative, join CCSJ in connecting campus and community for a more just and equitable world.
