Today the Baltimore Sun ran a great op-ed piece on how GHCC, among others, utilizes national service and other volunteers in Baltimore City. Though the piece focuses on our Experience Corps program, whose members logged over 144,000 hours of volunteer service just last year, this is a great opportunity reflect on the volunteers of all kinds who have shared their experience on Greater Homewood Voices.

- Tutors Lisa Morris and Mary Kay Shock wrote about GHCC’s Adult Literacy & ESOL Program.
- Long-time episodic volunteer Neal Gary doesn’t have a regular schedule with GHCC, but he’s happy to help whenever we need him. You can often find him helping out at major events throughout the year. We caught up with him in March to get his thoughts on his three years of volunteer work in Greater Homewood.
- Experience Corps volunteer Richard Przybyszewski enjoyed his service in Baltimore City Schools so much he applied for—and received!—a prestigious internship to teach in Poland. He wrote for us about what the experience meant to him.
- Many of our AmeriCorps*VISTA members have written about their service year on Greater Homewood Voices. Most recently, VISTA Leader Kaleema looked back on a year of ups and downs at the helm of our 16-member team.
