Readers for Elementary School
Volunteers are needed to read to students at William Paca
Elementary School in East Baltimore, as part of Black
History Month, at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 25. Reading
materials and transportation from the East Baltimore
medical campus will be provided. To volunteer, call Elana
Omari at 410-614-0744 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Language Tutors Needed
The Johns Hopkins International Society is expanding its
language tutoring program to provide not only a list of
English tutors but of tutors for other languages, as well.
The program is informal, less a teacher-student arrangement
and more an exchange between tutor and student. Tutors are
needed who can speak any language and would like to help,
on a one-to-one basis, intermediate learners improve their
language skills and/or teach new students. JHIS will be the
point of contact.
To volunteer, contact Erin McAlister, the JHIS
email@example.com. Provide name, contact
information, home country, language(s) the volunteer would
like to tutor, times available and the levels offered
(beginner, intermediate or advanced).
Potluck Lunches for International
The Johns Hopkins International Society hosts a monthly
potluck lunch designed for spouses of Hopkins'
international affiliates to meet others in the area.
Children are welcome. Each person brings a dish to share
with everyone. It can be a main dish, appetizer, dessert or
snack. It is not necessary to bring a homemade dish, though
many people do.
The lunches take place on the First Tuesday of each
month, unless there is a holiday or related event on the
Monday before the first Tuesday.
The next lunch is March 1, from 12:30 to 2:15 p.m. in
the Reed Hall small conference room. For more information,
