THE 29TH STREET COMMUNITY CENTER'S 6TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
By investing in the 29th Street Community Center, you are investing in free and low-cost programming for the entire community, including a structured afterschool program for over 60 students and a youth employment program for eight young people.
Calling all supporters of the 29
Street Community Center to come celebrate six years of free and low-cost programming!
The 29th Street Community Center’s 6th Birthday Celebration
will be held on
Saturday, May 18, 2019
(300 E. 29th Street).
Participate in the reimagining of the Community Center by sharing your feedback for what types of programming, events, and resources that you would like to see at the Center. We’ll have activities and programs for all ages as well as cake and ice cream to enjoy!
After being shut down in 2011, the then Barclay Recreation center was restored and reopened in 2013 by non-profit Strong City Baltimore and was renamed the 29th Street Community Center. This past year for the
first time in the Center’s six-year history, we are providing a structured afterschool program
60 students in Pre-K-8
grade each day of the week
Our elementary program is run in partnership with the
Baltimore Wisdom Project
, which provides an afterschool curriculum that revolves around restorative justice, mindfulness, arts integration, and conflict resolution. We have two middle school programs that are led by our afterschool coordinators and focuses on providing mentoring for students.
The Center also now serves as an employment hub for young people from the community year-round.
We have hired e
ight young people
were hired to work in our Afterschool program and are gaining job and career readiness experience. Last summer we hired
high school students that planned a weekend-long anti-violence initiative for youth in the community called “I Am Peace.”
You may be thinking $6,000 is quite a lofty goal…Well good! That will set us up for all the goals that we would like to accomplish this year including:
Continue our structured afterschool program and hire 12 young people ages 16-24 to participate in our afterschool program
Implement an intergenerational staffing model
that includes an experienced Teaching Artist from the Baltimore Wisdom Project, an Afterschool Coordinator who is post-high school, and two high school students
Host monthly community building events for community members, youth, and families
Get feedback from you so that we can provide the programming, resources, and events that you want to see here at the Community Center
