Sommer Scholars

Community Service

The first class of Sommer Scholars decided they wanted a close connection with the East Baltimore community.

In collaboration with the Student Outreach Resource Center (SOURCE), which is the community service and volunteerism center here, the Sommer Scholars launched a tutoring project with Dr. Rayner Browne Elementary School, located less than a mile from the Bloomberg School campus.

The scholars provide math and literacy tutoring on a weekly basis to students in kindergarten through the fifth grade.

Since that time, a tradition of service to the East Baltimore community has been a staple of the Sommer Scholars Program and continues each year through various projects.
