As Baltimore’s Local Management Board, Family League serves as an architect of change in Baltimore by promoting data-driven, collaborative initiatives and aligning resources to create lasting outcomes for children, families and communities. Our mission is that by 2030, all children in Baltimore will be born healthy, succeed in school, graduate high school and transition into higher education and the workforce. One of the ways we do this is by convening the Baltimore City School Climate Collaborative, a broad coalition working to create an environment where students feel safe, supported, and respected, attend regularly, and participate in the learning process. Click here for the full testimony.
