Hopkins Engage

Hopkins Engage, powered by GivePulse, is the university’s community engagement platform. Here, JHU students, staff, and faculty (and non-JHU affiliates) can connect directly with Baltimore community partners and other community-engaged campus departments. Volunteer opportunities and other community engagement opportunities are posted and continuously updated here.

The platform provides an easy search function for you to connect directly with organizations and projects you care about! Any Hopkins affiliate can log in through single sign-on with your JHED ID.

Community for Social Concern

CSC also advises around 40 student organizations you can get involved with, some with STEM outreach focus.

Organizations and Programs for JHU students focusing on STEM Outreach:

Charm City STEM League (CCSL) is a JHU student-led program that envisions a future where every student has the opportunity to explore their passions in STEM, develop skills and confidence to excel in STEM careers, and form beneficial relationships with mentors in their community. Volunteer mentors lead after school mentoring sessions for Science Olympiad teams in Baltimore City, serving students in grades 3-12.

Maryland Science Olympiad at JHU (MSO@JHU) is the college alumni chapter of Science Olympiad, a national STEM competition. The mission of MSO@JHU is to provide fun and challenging science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) competitions that build team skills and highlight the value that diversity brings to a team. Members can volunteer to write, proctor and grade tests/events at local regional tournaments and the State tournament held on the Homewood Campus in April.

Applying Science with Kids, or ASK, is an organization dedicated to teaching young students the excitement and wonders of science! Science and math classes that are disconnected from first-hand experience can discourage students. They lead after school demonstrations for students in grades 2-5 sites during the week.

This student organization provides introductory engineering experiences for elementary and middle school girls in the Baltimore area, through half-day weekend programs on the Johns Hopkins University campus. The girls will brainstorm, build, and present their prototype solutions to themed, real-world engineering problems in groups. JHU students act as mentors for the girls.
