This week, two OSI Baltimore Community Fellows, Janet Glover-Kerkvliet (2019) and Deborah Ramsey (2016) were featured on WYPR shows.
First, Janet Glover-Kervliet is the founder of the Baltimore Job Hunters Support group, which offers support and free career counseling to Baltimore job seekers. She spoke to Sheilah Kast on On the Record about how the pandemic has effected job hunting, comparing the current state of unemployment to the recession of 2008.
Glover-Kervliet’s segment starts at the 7 minute mark.
Next, Deborah Ramsey spoke to Tom Hall on Midday about Unified Efforts, the program she started to provide after school and summer programming for Baltimore City students. The program also seeks to combat summer learning loss, and now COVID learning loss. Deborah spoke of the organization’s plan to build a permanent site in the Penn-North community.
