Living Classrooms is a non-profit organization committed to strengthening communities and inspiring people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training. One such initiative provides ongoing support to aid formerly incarcerated individuals in adjusting and returning to their community. The "re-entry" initiative focuses on providing marketable work skills and experiential learning for these individuals who are struggling to succeed against terrible odds. We were able to successfully make and deliver 526 sandwiches to local Baltimore residents at our first joint event. Now, we are moving outdoors and focusing on environmental clean up.
