Refugee Youth Project, Baltimore
VisionWorkshops has partnered with the Refugee Youth Project (RYP), a program of Baltimore City Community College, since 2007. We've mentored young people who have made their home in Baltimore after escaping conflict and persecution in Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, Somolia, and other locations worldwide.
Our goal for our RYP partnership is to guide and support youth who are working to build new lives in Baltimore, and to listen to and share their stories through photography and writing. RYP student work has been shown at the Walters Art Museum, Stevenson University, and at the International Rescue Committee's Baltimore Resettlement Center.
