SOURCE Alumni Newsletter
10 Years of Successful Engagement
2015 has been a big year for SOURCE. On January 1st, SOURCE officially turned ten. In honor of our anniversary, we launched the inaugural SOURCE Alumni Newsletter in February 2015.
Then, on April 23rd, 2015, we celebrated our decade of work in a reception and celebration at the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Museum. It was a beautiful celebration where Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake officially proclaimed April 23rd, 2015 as “SOURCE Day” in honor of our commitment to Baltimore City.
Soon after our celebration, however, Baltimore City experienced uprisings in the wake of Freddie Gray’s death. Although we had just completed a successful National Volunteer Week, SOURCE and Hopkins students jumped into action to help rebuild.
This issue looks back at the celebrations and SOURCE’s accomplishments from the last ten years. Additionally, we look forward to the future of working with the community by reflecting on the uprisings and what comes next.

In celebration of ten years, we created a beautiful infographic that shows the impact of SOURCE’s work as well as the timeline of what we’ve accomplished over the last ten years. Check the infographic and timeline out here
On Thurs, April 23rd, we celebrated our 10 years in Baltimore as a Hopkins tri-school community service and service-learning center. There, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake proclaimed April 23rd, 2015 as SOURCE Day in honor of our ongoing work with the community.
Responding to the Baltimore Uprisings: Reframing Baltimore's Narrative
