Idea + Action = Change

Joby Taylor is director of the Shriver Peaceworker Program.

“What is going to change the world today is the same thing that has changed it in the past: An idea and the service of dedicated individuals committed to that idea.” —Sargent Shriver

This short video tells my story of coming to The Shriver Center at UMBC to participate in the Shriver Peaceworker Fellows Program. Our program and Center are named for Sargent and Eunice Shriver and it’s hard to think of any family that has made a deeper positive impact on our world through their service and civic engagement!

Each year our Peaceworker program supports a group of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers as they participate in a graduate-level service-learning program at UMBC. These students bring a wealth of experiences from around the world to their studies and service here in Baltimore. If you’re interested in the Peace Corps or continuing your service and engagement into grad school and beyond, they are a great group to get to know!
