Before Winston Branch participated in Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape he planned to leave the area after graduation. Now, since completing the program, he feels much more connected to the community and plans to stay in the city after college. Winston envisions physical, educational, and economic growth in Baltimore. The experience completely shifted his educational and career goals; and the opportunity to work with other students meant not only idea sharing but new friendships, too.
Through Collegetown LeaderShape Winston volunteered at the Paul’s Place Huff & Puff 5K where everyone helped with race setup and at water stations for runners. “One thing I learned from the experience is that giving back can be fun and exciting! It’s also a great way to meet and network with new people.”
