Living Classrooms Foundation is a Baltimore-Washington based non-profit educational organization, founded in 1985 in Baltimore, and serving the National Capital Region since 2001. Living Classrooms has a distinctive competency in experiential learning -- literally learning by direct experience, or what we call "learning by doing." We apply our skill in three program areas:
Educating students through our own charter school, through after-school and supplemental education programs, and through environmental experiences, with special emphasis on serving students who live in high-risk environmentsEliminating barriers to success for young adults and families through community development, workforce preparation, and life skills trainingEducating the general public, and students in particular, about the significance of the regions maritime heritage and its role in shaping who we are as a community and nation
While each of our program areas is distinct, in combination they create a powerful synergy. Our maritime heritage programs create opportunities for employment training. Our education programs use our environmental and maritime resources as living learning laboratories. Our employability programs create stronger communities that are better prepared to exercise environmental stewardship.
Mission: Living Classrooms Foundation strengthens communities and inspires young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as "living classrooms."
