Johns Hopkins CTY Civic Leadership Institute - Institute for Educational Advancement

Johns Hopkins CTY Civic Leadership Institute

Through an introductory course in Service, Leadership & Community Transformation, students are challenged to learn in new ways and apply their skills in real-world settings. Several times a week, in their class groups, students engage in service projects that span neighborhoods, organizations, and approaches to addressing social problems. A series of all-campus guest speakers allows students to hear from top government, business and nonprofit leaders about their experiences, perspectives, and advice for young people wanting to create change. Over the course of the program, students identify a need in their community and create a plan to address it, applying the tools they learned throughout the course to an area of personal interest.
