Baltimore City Mayoral Fellowship

The Baltimore City Mayoral Fellowship is a ten week full-time placement in a Mayoral office or agency. Fellows will be assigned to projects that focus on a myriad of public policy issues and challenges. Mayoral Fellows will complete their projects under the direction of senior level government officials and will be provided with immediate and direct feedback. Mayoral Fellows are placed in agencies based on their background, interests and the needs of the agencies and departments.

Weekly Speaker Series

Mayoral Fellows have weekly brown-bag lunches with cabinet members, corporate executives, and community leaders, in a small and informal setting. The lunches are designed to provide an opportunity for in-depth discussions on the vast and complex issues facing the city, including business development, housing, crime, civic engagement, education, health, and community redevelopment.

Newsletter Production

Each week, Fellows produce a newsletter highlighting that week’s activities, interviews with fellow classmates, and spotlighting agencies. Fellows work in teams to complete this task.

Final Presentations

At the conclusion of the summer, Fellows will make presentations before the Mayor and cabinet officials summarizing their placements and overall summer experience. They will also complete a written final project report documenting their research, solutions and next steps.

The ultimate objective of the fellowship is to encourage talented individuals, with an interest in public service, to seek permanent positions within City government at the conclusion of their academic program. Job placement at the successful completion of the Fellowship is not guaranteed.

Who We Are and What We Do

Founded in 1979, Maryland League of Conservation Voters (LCV) is non-partisan, 501 (c)(4) known as the political voice for the environment.  We have since grown to a full-time, staffed organization that is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

Accountability

Maryland LCV is best known for our comprehensive yearly scorecard that evaluates the environmental votes of individual state legislators. We also grade the environmental record of the Governor. In addition, we regularly alert the public and the media of key actions of elected officials and closely monitor agencies and executive appointments.

Advocacy

The Maryland LCV also advocates in the halls of the State House in Annapolis, working with our colleagues in the environmental community we push for sound conservation laws such as the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act of 2009, Stormwater Management Act of 2007, Clean Cars Act of 2007, Healthy Air Act of 2006, and the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Act of 2005 to name but a few. Additionally, we helped ensure that environmental values are reflected in the state’s budget priorities and have saved millions of dollars of funding for land conservation through Program Open Space. We work to educate and mobilize the public to lobby for sound conservation policies and funding.

Elections

During elections we make endorsements, run strategic campaigns aimed at electing pro-conservation candidates, mobilize volunteers, educate voters, and elevate environmental issues. In 2010, 88% of Maryland LCV-endorsed candidate won (a total of 121 out of 138 endorsed candidates.) In 2014, we’ll focus on elected a strong conservation minded Governor, gaining 5 additional pro-conservation State Senators, and protecting our pro-conservation majority in the House.

April 10th Employer Info Session: Reading Partners

readingpartners

Reading Partners is a national education nonprofit dedicated to improving students’ reading skills. We work in Title I elementary schools to support students from low-income communities who are reading 6 months to 2.5 years below grade-level.

We recruit and train community volunteers to work one-on-one with students for 45 minutes twice a week, following a structured, research-based curriculum.

Strong reading skills are essential. Students reading below grade level in third grade are four times as likely as their peers to drop out of school before earning their diploma. Dropping out of school and failing to attend college comes with a real price both to the individual and to society. High school dropouts are more likely than those who graduate to be arrested or have a child while still a teenager.

The challenge is significant. According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress in 2011, just 34% of our nation’s fourth graders could read proficiently. Once students start to fall behind in reading, they tend to fall faster and further behind their peers with every year.

Reading Partners works. Reading Partners builds a partnership with teachers, parents, and community volunteers to provide students the support they need to succeed. By providing volunteer tutors research-based, structured lesson plans designed to focus on the individual needs of our students, Reading Partners is helping students become strong, confident readers with a passion for learning.

In 2012-13, nearly 9 in 10 Reading Partners students (88%) accelerated their rate of learning in reading.
