Welcome to the University of Maryland’s volunteer opportunity website. Our goal is to connect students, faculty, and staff at the University of Maryland, Baltimore and employees at the University of Maryland Medical Center with volunteer projects in our area. It’s a place for you to sign up for service activities, and a place to post service activities that need volunteers.
By creating an account on this site, you can also indicate your areas of interest and your availability to volunteer, and someone from the Community Engagement team will contact you when opportunities arise that fit your profile. If you have questions about this website, please contact us.
Health Profession Job Shadowing
The UMB Office of Community Engagement invites faculty and post docs to host a local k-12 student with an interest in healthcare career for the Summer BioScience Internship Program (SBIP). SBIP is coordinated by the UMB Office of Community Engagement and the School of Medicine’s Department of Family Medicine in partnership with the Baltimore City Mayor’s Office of Employment Development to offer paid summer experiences to learn about careers in healthcare. Participating students will shadow a UMB faculty member or post doc for 5 weeks during the summer (generally during the month of July) and will share a powerpoint presentation with their peers about their experience at the culmination of the program. Interested faculty should contact Brian Sturdivant, Director for Strategic Initiatives and Community Partnerships to get involved.
