Johns Hopkins Takes Time for Schools Helps Mentor Young Minds
Johns Hopkins Takes Time for Schools (JHTTFS) is a service partnership that provides opportunities for faculty and staff to offer their talents to the city's youth and improve the administrative and educational outcomes of Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS). Listen to Johns Hopkins volunteers and BCPS staff describe the positive impact of the partnership on students.
