Maryland Launches “Maryland Serves” Application Portal

August 19th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Governor Wes Moore announced the launch of the Maryland Serves application portal on August 14th, offering a pathway to new service opportunities, especially for recent high school graduates. 

Service Year Option: Available to high school graduates ages 18-21 who have received their high school diploma, completion certificate or earned their GED in Maryland. Members of the program will have the opportunity to serve across the state in organizations that will provide job training and focused professional development while earning at least $15 an hour.

Maryland Corps: Available to adults of all ages who are interested in performing public and community service in Maryland. Like the Service Year Option, members will work in organizations and receive access to resources, including personal money management training, while also earning at least $15 an hour. 

Upon completion of either nine-month program, members will earn $6,000 toward tuition costs or as a cash stipend.

Eligible adults who are interested in service opportunities are encouraged to submit an application via the new portal.  The priority deadline is September 1
