The Service-Learning Team added new community partners to increase choices for UMBC students through the 096 Community Service & Learning Practicum. This includes the Path Before Me at UMBC/The Choice Program, UMB CURE Scholars, U.S. Dream Academy at Pimlico Elementary/Middle School, Student Ambassadors (on-campus), and Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap. Some sites have already filled for this fall, others could use just 1-2 more students to help schools and/or non-profits reach an ideal capacity.
