WE ARE BUILDING A NETWORK OF CHANGE MAKERS
Ever wonder what sort of things Baltimore Corps Alumni are involved in, or maybe what initiatives they are heading?
During his fellowship Marvin was responsible for creating strategies and building the infrastructure necessary for sustainability and scale of the WombWork model, translating WombWork's vision to diverse audiences and creating systems and structures designed to strengthen, enhance, and scale the model.
This is Ateira’s modus operandi. She makes it a point to have a seat at the table where there is typically a lack of representation of women of color. This time, Ateira had been invited to be at this table and she did not have to do much fighting to get there. Knowing that her seat might pave the way for other young women, especially for young black women to be able to guide the process of growth and development of the city in a way that fits the resident’s needs is what brought her the greatest joy and inspiration. In addition, the opportunity to be able to speak candidly in that gathering with authenticity felt like a huge success. Ateira summed it all up with a final quote, one of her favorites from Shirley Chisolm, “If they don’t make a space for you at the table, bring a folding chair.”

We now know that for every person who isn’t counted we lose $1,800 every year for services that our city needs. Services like Medicaid and Medicare, SNAP, school lunches, community block grants--programs whose funding depends on population.
The Employer Engagement Manager will generate, maintain, and consult with potential partner organizations (social impact employers) for Baltimore Corps’ Fellowship and Public Allies Maryland programs, as well as support the Place for Purpose service.
The Fellowship Program Manager will work closely with a dynamic programs team across the following key priority areas: coaching Fellows around their career and professional development; investing in leadership development; and building and strengthening the equity and racial justice focus of Baltimore Corps Fellows and Visionary Cause Leaders (employer partners).

“…this is Local Color and you’re here for great interviews with Baltimore’s premier thought leaders! Fagan Harris is one such thought leader. As CEO of Baltimore Corps he’s working to provide Baltimoreans opportunities and access to jobs, job training, and other programs that help small business owners. Listen as we discuss hard lessons, respoinding to community feedback, and Fagan remains calm amidst one of my worst fears.”
