What We Do

Through our unique learning environments, Living Classrooms provides access to more equitable education, workforce, health, and wellness opportunities that enable individuals to achieve their goals and build safer, stronger, and healthier communities for all.



Through decades of work in Baltimore and Washington, DC, Living Classrooms has collaborated within our community, with corporate and private supporters, and leaders at all levels from our neighborhood associations to our City Halls to implement community-driven, research-based, best practices that value the priorities, goals, and aspirations of our community and deliver both opportunity and results.



Programming occurs at multiple locations in Baltimore and the National Capital Region which have been developed in collaboration with residents in the surrounding neighborhoods, including our Community Hubs (UA House, POWER House, Patterson Park House, and Broadway Overlook Center in Baltimore, and the James C. Dent House in DC); environmental education campuses that preserve and showcase urban green spaces and serve as outdoor learning laboratories; our public charter middle school; and our fleet of ships including active floating classrooms and stationary historic museum vessels that offer activities in STEM, ecology, and cultural and maritime heritage
