Welcome to the University of Maryland’s volunteer opportunities. 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.

With our nationally ranked schools, leading centers, and acclaimed programs, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is on the move. Take advantage of this exciting time to become one of our key stakeholders and help UMB catalyze global advances in health and human services.

More about Thread:

At a time when many people feel disconnected from neighbors and community, an organization in Baltimore brings together people of all ages, races and socioeconomic status to end social isolation and build a more equitable culture in which everyone thrives. Thread, a local non-profit, harnesses the power of relationships to create a new social fabric of diverse individuals deeply engaged with young people facing the most significant opportunity and achievement gaps.

Thread matches every young person it enrolls with an extended family of up to four volunteers from across the region who provide tailored support like rides to school, weekend dinners or navigating transitions to adulthood. This customized support provided by Thread Families aims to increase outcomes like high school graduation rates, post high school pathways and a greater sense of belonging for everyone in our community.

If you’d like to be part of transformational change and build a more connected Baltimore, visit thread.org to learn more about volunteer opportunities at Thread!
