Function of Organization/Site:

The Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) has its origins at the Calvert School, which had been tasked with taking their method of direct teaching and adapting it for use in some of the public schools in Baltimore. BCP has been partnering with Baltimore City Schools for the past 15 years.Their mission is to develop, implement, and advocate for an innovative, sustainable, and replicable education model that improves student outcomes. In so doing, the Baltimore Curriculum Project helps raise educational standards and opportunities for disadvantaged youth and Baltimore City schools.  BCP empowers neighborhood schools to improve curricula and student outcomes by providing them with the tools that they need to succeed.  BCP has seen incredible results both in student achievement and teacher confidence in the classroom from their unique one-on-one approach.

BCP Schools include:

City Spring Elementary/Middle School
Frederick Elementary School
Govans Elementary School
Hampstead Hill Academy
Wolfe Street Academy

Involvement Opportunities:


Ideally, these volunteers would work with children over the course of at least a semester, though preferably for a year or longer; this benefits both the child and the volunteer, because it creates a stable adult in the child’s life and allows the volunteer to see the growth of the child’s work.  These opportunities would preferably occur within the course of the school day, but could also be integrated into the after-school program, if needed.• Listen to children read out loud, help with their fluency, have someone to talk to (perfect practice makes perfect).
