Living Classrooms of the National Capital Region
Living Classrooms Foundation is a nonprofit organization, operated for the benefit of the community at large, providing hands-on education and job skills training for students from diverse backgrounds, with a special emphasis on serving at-risk youth. The Foundation uses maritime settings, community revitilization projects and other challenging learning environments, and a low staff-to-student ratio. Our "learning by doing" education programs emphasize the applied learning of math, science, language arts, history, economics, and ecology. Key objectives of all Living Classrooms programs are career development, community service, elevating self-esteem, and fostering multicultural exchange.
