UMB Volunteers Set Sail
Almost 30 years ago, two public school teachers in East Baltimore dreamed about getting their students on the water. With The Lady Maryland, a 109 foot ship, they launched an initiative called Living Classrooms, which has brought hands-on learning experiences to more than 16,000 youth.
During on Tuesday, Sept. 3, University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) students and staff helped Living Classrooms clean trash, which washes into the wetlands and marina, from the area surrounding their East Harbor Campus. Organizations such as Under Armour and Legg Mason also joined in.
The health of the water and its importance to our ecosystem and our city, both historically and now, has been a component of the Living Classrooms Foundation’s direction. But the organization’s driving force is meeting the needs of the Baltimore community with their creative programs.
For more on their many programs, visit livingclassrooms.org.
There are many ways you can support the work of Living Classrooms:
- clean-up trash
- become involved in their educational programs
- teach life or job skills
- become a guide at a historical site
- help with ship maintenance
- coach an after-school sports team
