Partner Organization Interest Form
Baltimore Corps has two programs matching talent to opportunity in Baltimore’s social sector — the Fellowship program and Public Allies Maryland. At the heart of both is a connection to Baltimore Corps’ values of advancing equity and racial justice; increasing sector effectiveness; and putting Baltimore first. If your organization shares these values, we would welcome the opportunity to explore possibilities for your organization to host an Ally and/or Fellow. Get the conversation started by filling out the Interest Form on this page.
What does Baltimore Corps look for in a PARTNER?
Baltimore Corps’ partner organizations are those tackling Baltimore’s biggest challenges. A partner organization can be a nonprofit organization, for-profit social enterprise, government agency, or other impact-oriented initiative that hosts a Public Ally for 10 months with the option to extend and/or a Fellow for one year, with the option to hire long-term.
While applicants are considered on a case-by-case basis, each of our partners is intensely focused on generating social impact in Baltimore City, across sectors and focus areas. Partner organizations deploy Allies or Fellows in capacity-building roles: expanding existing programs; piloting new programs; or providing specialized support.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN hosting A PUBLIC ALLY AND A BALTIMORE CORPS FELLOW?
While Public Allies and Fellows, alike, are committed to Baltimore and our core values of increasing sector effectiveness and advancing equity and racial justice, each program has distinct characteristics and requirements. The following comparison highlights some of the unique qualities of each program:
|Public Allies Maryland*||Fellowship|
|Placement||Apprenticeship; early career||Early- to mid-level professional|
|Length||10-month placement, beginning October 15||12-month placement, beginning September 16|
