What they do: Nonprofit that connects job-seekers with careers in the social sector through a year-long fellowship.
Why we like them: For more than five years, this innovative organization has worked to deploy human capital to tackle the city’s biggest challenges, and it’s expanding its three core programs: funding social entrepreneurs, connecting job seekers with social impact careers, and the fellowship. Today, a network of more than 100 Baltimore Corp alumni are working to improve their community at private, public, and nonprofit organizations throughout the city, from the mayor’s office and Code in the Schools to the T. Rowe Price Foundation.
Best benefits: Employees here feel a sense of community throughout the team and from the inspirational leadership of co-founder and CEO Fagan Harris. Located in TouchPoint Baltimore, a co-working space in Mondawmin Mall that Baltimore Corps shares with Thread and Center for Urban Families, employees describe it as “open, flexible, and collaborative.” Working from outside the office is encouraged. There’s also an emphasis on health, including a monthly “wellness” day for employees to take off and recharge, time for community service, and a stipend to spend on any wellness activities, be that yoga classes or a gym membership.
