Marc was joined by Dante Wilson, the founder of Reclaiming Our Children and Community Project in Baltimore, in a discussion panel including Larry Dix, a participant bringing the program to youth detention centers, and Daryl Richards, another participant working with elementary schools. Nancy Fagan, principal of Highlandtown Elementary School and Marsha Powell, principal of Stuart Hill Academic Academy Middle joined us by phone. The panel discussed Dante’s innovative and effective strategies for mentoring youth in our city’s schools, detention centers, and in his own community center in West Baltimore.

Also, we had an update about the fire that burned down the playground at Stadium Place in Waverly on Tuesday, and the plans to rebuild it.  For more info, or to help out, click here.
