We will be hosting three Community Capacity Building events  across the city throughout June and July.  Sessions will be designed to provide training and hand-on support to prospective applicants, with organized supports tailored to the content and structure of the Fund’s Year one request for proposal. Sessions will be staffed by Frontline Solutions, staff consultants and advisors, and volunteers.

And how are the children?

“And how are the children?” A traditional greeting of the Maasai people of East Africa that places the safety and wellbeing of children at the forefront of all other community matters. The response, “All the children are well,” confirms that the priorities of the community are in order.

The Baltimore Children & Youth Fund puts the priorities of our youth first and supports leaders like you that are committed to the health and wellbeing of all our children.
