SOURCE Service-Learning Community Fellows Program

 
The SOURCE Service-Learning Community Fellows program is an extension of our SOURCE Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program (FFP) which engages faculty in a year-long program that trains and supports faculty to integrate service-learning into their academic courses.  Since the inaugural faculty cohort (2012-13), we have seen an increase of 17 new service-learning courses where faculty have engaged students in meaningful practice and community service experiences with SOURCE community-based organizations (CBOs) while advancing academic outcomes.  The SOURCE Service-Learning Community Fellows program occurs alongside the FFP trainings and meetings so that partnering CBOs will gain an understanding of service-learning pedagogy while also finding practical ways to engage with JHU faculty and courses.

The 2013-14 Inaugural Community Fellows cohort was launched in June 2013 with the involvement of three Fellows: Adrienne Atlee from the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Pam Brown from Baltimore Medical System (BMS), and Andrew Timleck from AIRS (AIDS Interfaith Residential Services). In 2014, we accepted 4 more Community Fellows: Gayne Barlow-Kemper (Kennedy Krieger Southeast Early Headstart), Nancy Blackwell (Court Appointed Special Advocates - CASA - of Baltimore), Rebekah Lin Meyer (Living Classrooms Foundation), and Larry Schugam (Baltimore Curriculum Project).
