Reading by Nine

To ensure that Baltimore's children enter school ready to learn and succeed in school, the Reading by Nine Strategy supports the Baltimore City Public School System in its effort to improve reading in the early grades; supports quality reading activities after school; helps parents help kids develop language and learn to read; and gets the community involved with activities that promote reading and learning everywhere.

Violence Reduction & Community Safety

To ensure that Baltimore's young people live in safe communities, Operation Safe Neighborhoods targets areas where violence is highest; identifies chronic, serious offenders in those neighborhoods; intervenes with inter-agency enforcement; arrests key impact offenders; involves faith leaders, community leaders, and service providers; brings offenders together, promising arrest or help; and coordinates service delivery to offenders who express a desire to turn from crime.

To ensure that the Baltimore youth most at risk to kill or be killed have a meaningful chance to turn their lives around, Operation Safe Kids uses a public health model to decrease rates of arrest; increase rates of employment; and improve educational attainment of these specific 13-18 year-olds.

Community Engagement

To ensure that adults in Baltimore take responsibility for the conditions Baltimore’s children grow up under, the Community Engagement strategy seeks to inform Baltimore residents of the statistics that describe young people’s wellbeing in our city, and to involve them in active advocacy to strengthen and sustain the citywide strategies that are beginning to improve those statistics. At the same time, the interactive nature of the Community Engagement work allows adults to see young people (particularly teens) in a more positive light and to experience firsthand how essential it is for a community to be intentional about providing every youth with a wealth of opportunities to succeed.
