SOURCE Service Scholars Program 

SOURCE is currently accepting CBO proposals for the 2017-2018 program year. Deadline for CBOs to complete their proposal is Sun, Jan 29 at 11:59pm 

Up to 10 SOURCE Service Scholars (SSS) will be selected for the 2017-2018 academic year to lead small teams of students on projects to be developed with SOURCE partnering community-based organizations (CBOs).  Projects should be geared towards the ability to lead and involve a small team of students (minimum of 4 students, but opportunity to engage more students in activities is welcome) and should take place throughout the academic year (September 2017-May 2018).  Upon completion of in-depth training and a minimum requirement of 150 hours of service, Scholars will receive a small stipend for their on-going commitment to the community project.

Scholar projects must be completed within the academic year.  The program is not designed to bring students on as interns to assist with regular program management; rather, the position should be designed to begin and end within the time frame allotted, working on a specific project.  Additionally, the role of the Scholar is designed to assist an organization in bringing on volunteers from the JHU health professional schools to work on the project or assist with activities at the organization – these can be either one-time or ongoing volunteer positions.  CBOs interested in bringing on a Scholar must have ideas for the volunteer recruitment component of the project.

Potential Project Examples Include:

The 2017-2018 academic year will be the sixth year of the SOURCE Service Scholars (SSS) Program, a unique opportunity for students to make a long-term commitment to a Baltimore community-based organization (CBO) that is a SOURCE partner while receiving a $1,250 stipend. Scholars will receive training and guidance from SOURCE staff covering the following: service-learning theories and practices, project management, volunteer recruitment and management, and delivering and reporting on outcomes. Additionally, Scholars will engage in reflective practice throughout the program. These trainings will be delivered through the SOURCE Service Academy as well as one-on-one consultations with SOURCE staff.

This opportunity is open to any student enrolled full-time in the Schools of Public Health and Nursing during the 2017-2018 academic year who has an interest in long-term service and community-based professional development.
