The 2019 Class Of OSI Fellows


Open Society Institute’s Baltimore field office works to improve city life by offering start-up funding to social entrepreneurs.

We get a behind the scenes view of how OSI community fellows are selected with Pamela King, who oversees the program, and 2016 fellow Gianna Rodriguez, who heads Baltimore Youth Arts.

Then, we kick off our profiles of this year’s fellows with Alphonso Mayo. He was working as a football coach when he saw the gap a mentor could fill. Mayo’s project - Mentors Mentoring - will bring middle, high school, and college students together to build a chain of mentoring.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is Senior Supervising Producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
