We provide a wide range of innovative in-school, after-school, and summer programs in partnership with community organizations, Baltimore City Public School System, local government, and industry. We expose youth to key concepts early, help them develop 21st century skills and capabilities, and build pathways from school to jobs and higher education. Our team of dedicated and knowledgeable instructors travels between 22 partner sites in ten Baltimore City zip codes teaching key skills in under-served areas.
WHY IT MATTERS:
By 2020, there will be one million open jobs in computing nationwide. Baltimore's residents, especially our youth, cannot afford to be excluded from this $500-billion dollar opportunity.
By helping youth develop the skills increasingly in demand by business, we prepare them for jobs that support families and lead to well-paying careers. At the same time, we are building a competitive local labor force that will increase the city’s position as an innovation hub and attract more businesses, ensuring a prosperous future for all Baltimoreans.
