Summary

Clay Pots...A Place to Grow is partnering with donors like you and other community organizations to raise the needed funds to expand its existing education center and computer lab. This project will increase access to the GED program, not only in preparing transient and permanent residents in Southwest Baltimore for the GED, but also in equipping students with the computer skills necessary to sit for the newly computerized testing.

Challenge

27% of the high school population in Southwest Baltimore passed the English HSA. 22% passed the Algebra test. With a high school completion rate of 71% and a 1 in 5 juvenile repeat arrest rate, gaining access to an economically sound and socially enriching life is hard.

Solution

Our mission is to provide a safe space for the community that fosters spiritual and personal growth. The Fund a Diploma project will expand our existing education center to provide increased access to computers needed to complete the newly computerized GED exam. The center will provide greater access to the free GED programs and the computer skills needed to sit for the exam.

Long-Term Impact

Through the expansion of the education center more residents in Southwest Baltimore will have a GED to pursue their dreams. In the last few years of the program, 32% of the GED graduates went on to higher education, while others became gainfully employed. We would like to increase these opportunities as we believe this in turn will improve the sense of community in the neighborhoods and remove a lot of the social ills it faces.
