Build-A-Block students recognized by the Baltimore Ravens and the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism.

Build-A-Block students were the recipients of the the 15th Annual Honor Rows Program, sponsored by the Baltimore Ravens and the Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism. The GOTV wrote:

“Together, these student-led clubs fundraise, advocate for, and build homes for qualifying low-income families in their communities. Since 2010, the Build-a-Block students have raised the funding needed to build homes for seven families, and have contributed more than 15,000 volunteer hours in service to their mission. The groups select and develop their own adult advisory boards, hold each other accountable for meeting deadlines and achieving goals, and motivate their peers. Finally, students are challenged to get to know and understand new communities, contexts, and cultures by working with students from other schools, and by building in other neighborhoods.” 

In addition to Park, The Build-A-Block Coatiion of schools includes Roland Park Country School, Carver Vocational Technical High School and Friends School of Baltimore. Congratulations to all of the students for their recognition!
