Your support gives youth opportunities.

Career Readiness: After the school day ends, 30 Baltimore City Public High School students call Parks & People home. They are part of Branches, our Environmental Internship Program where they study the environment and the potential for green careers. These students gain job readiness skills, and put over 5,000 hours into projects making a positive difference in city neighborhoods.

After-School Sports: Baltimore City Public Middle School students have almost no access to after-school sports and few places to safely play outside. Parks & People solves this problem with a unique after-school sports program integrating athletic skill building,environmental learning and character development. More than 600 students participate in six leagues fielding 45 teams playing soccer, lacrosse, basketball, kick-ball, baseball and volleyball.

Summer Camp: Our six-week SuperKids camp engages more than 500 city elementary school children with more than 150 hours of environmental education, reading, arts and outdoor activities. Our donors help keep costs low so families only pay what they can afford for full-day programming, including transportation, breakfast and lunch.

Community Greening: In a city with more than 14,000 vacant lots and 16,000 abandoned buildings, green space can be a rare commodity. Parks & People works with 100+ community led groups each year as they seek to transform, activate and maintain public parks and green spaces.
