What Students Study
Participants in Collegetown LeaderShape study a broad spectrum of majors, minors, and professional programs. Any combination of academic interests can be applied to the LeaderShape curriculum and programs. LeaderShape is an opportunity to link academic interests with current, real-world events and issues in Baltimore city.
Students will be asked to rank areas of focus that are of most interest to them and write an essay related to their passion for service and the Baltimore Community in the application process. These are the identified areas of focus:
K-12 Education (Tutoring, mentoring, teacher support, school programs)
