A community task force developed the blueprint for BCYF

2017 - A community task force developed the blueprint for BCYF

Baltimore City Council named Associated Black Charities (ABC) as BCYF’s interim operator

The Youth Fund Task Force developed a set of values that would guide the Task Force during the process.

Those values are as follows:

  • Our work is informed, driven and led by youth voices, and
  • Our work both advances equity and is welcoming and supporting of all races, classes and gender identities, and
  • Our work is accountable and has impact to local communities, neighborhoods and places where young people connect, and
  • Our work is not politically-driven and promotes confidence from the caring networks of Baltimore’s Young people, and
  • Our work inspires new partnerships and new approaches to philanthropy to advance Baltimore’s young people, and
  • Our work is focused, expedient, and conducted with
    urgency.
