UB Students Making a Huge Difference in Baltimore

Community Development Fellowship Program A Project of College of Public Affairs

Taking It to the Streets

Community Development Fellows gives CPA students with an interest in effecting positive change in urban areas an opportunity to strengthen their leadership skills and gain hands-on experience while working with community organizations throughout Baltimore City. Community Development Fellows is a competitive program where students are paid to learn while improving our City at its core. Placements include city Main Street Associations, Healthy Neighborhood Associations and small nonprofits throughout the city that support their communities.

Organizations such as Belair-Edison Neighborhood, Inc. Bon Secours Community Works, Greenmount West Community Association, Historic Pennsylvania Avenue Main Street, and Pigtown Main Street have benefitted from work by our student fellows.

We Want to Expand Our Reach!

Community Development Fellows work anywhere from eight to twenty hours per week and earn $10 per hour. In 2016, five students were placed, but in 2017 we want the CDF program to double in size to ten student fellows. Already two of our students have been asked to continue working with their organizations after the end of their fellowships.

You can help us make a big impact in our neighborhoods and create a new generation of Baltimore community development leaders with your support.
