About Us

Baltimore Reads, Inc.

OUR MISSION Baltimore Reads improves the quality of life for adults, children and families by teaching basic reading, writing, mathematics and employment readiness to support the strong literacy and life skills that are essential for lifelong learning, employment and self-sufficiency. Baltimore Reads also raises awareness of literacy needs through advocacy and offers adult education and family literacy resources to community based organizations and neighborhoods.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW Since 1988, Baltimore Reads has been improving the quality of life for educationally disadvantaged adults and their families. We believe that education is the key to economic and social empowerment. Through our programs, participants gain the necessary skills for self-sufficiency, employment, and life-long learning.

THE RIPKEN ADULT LEARNING CENTER The Ripken Adult Learning Center promotes reading and literacy as a tool for personal and economic self-improvement. The Center is a full-service learning program focused on assisting adults in reaching their academic and employment goals. Annually, the Ripken Adult Learning Center serves approximately 325 adults in day and evening classes. The Center provides Reading, GED preparation and English as a Second Language classes in the mornings, afternoons and evenings at both on- and off-site locations in and around Baltimore City.
