SJP Engage

SJP Volunteer Activity

Introducing SJP Engage.
St. John Properties’ new volunteer initiative for employees.

SJP Engage gives each employee the opportunity to engage with the community, nonprofit organizations, and colleagues across departments by providing a yearlong schedule of coordinated half day volunteer opportunities that positively impact the communities in which St. John Properties has a presence.

In an effort to foster and grow a culture of philanthropy and engagement at St. John Properties, each employee will have the opportunity to participate in a volunteer event benefiting one of the Baltimore area non-profit organizations below.

Participation is first come, first served, and must be approved by your department supervisor. All necessary materials will be provided, including an SJP Engage t-shirt. Individuals are responsible for their own meals and transportation to and from events.
