Volunteering

Volunteering isn’t just a great way to improve your community. It can also help build up your resume.

People often think of volunteering as a wholly selfless pursuit, trying to benefit the community around you as a means of pursuing good deeds.

Baltimore Ceasefire

Baltimore has a problem with violence and the organizers at Baltimore Ceasefire are attempting to alleviate that.

This past weekend, organizers of a 72-hour Baltimore Ceasefire initiative took to the streets to march, pray, and heal with other residents of Baltimore City. Their goal was to slow the pace of violence in their community and encouraged residents of Baltimore to go one full weekend without anyone getting murdered. The participants of Baltimore Ceasefire are deeply invested in the well-being of their city and bringing us all together for a more unified sense of community.
