Give a Day. Change a Mind.

The Maryland Business Roundtable for Education (MBRT) is looking for volunteers to join their Maryland Scholars Speakers Bureau. Volunteers inform, motivate and inspire eighth- and ninth-grade students statewide to prepare them for college and careers.

The Maryland Scholars message increases students’ awareness about the importance of rigorous coursework, college/career expectations and the realities of life after high school. Eighty-three percent of students say their speaker influenced their academic decisions.

Volunteering requires a minimal amount of time away from work: a three-hour training session and four 50-minute classroom presentations—the equivalent of two half-days. After training, volunteers select schools, dates and times that are convenient for their schedules. To register for the program and a training session, visit http://mbrt.org/speak. Special training dates for Johns Hopkins employees are scheduled on:

Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 1-4pm
Johns Hopkins Medical Campus
1830 E. Monument Street
Room 2-108

Friday, Nov. 6 from 9-noon
Johns Hopkins at Eastern High School
Parking is free at Eastern High School.

The Johns Hopkins Shuttle makes frequent runs between campuses. For more information on shuttle schedules, visit http://ts.jhu.edu/Shuttles/.
