readingpartners.org/location/baltimore

Reading Partners places community volunteers in low-income schools to help kids master basic reading. We’ve been part of the Baltimore educational landscape since 2012, when we opened our first reading center at Friendship Academy at Cherry Hill with the strong support of the Baltimore City education community.

According to the Maryland State Assessment, only slightly more than half of Baltimore third graders from low-income families can read at grade level. Without reading, kids won’t have an equitable chance to succeed. As decades of research have shown, students from disadvantaged households perform less well in school, on average, than their peers. Reading Partners is proud to be a driving force in uniting the greater Baltimore community to improve students’ academic achievement.

By partnering with Baltimore community members and leaders from local school districts, government, corporations, community organizations, universities, churches, and more, we’re mobilizing the people who care about Baltimore’s children to give back to local schools in a meaningful way. We believe that together we can create a future where every child in Baltimore has the support they need to become strong readers and lifelong learners.

Reading Partners is looking for Volunteers.

Employer Profile: The Baltimore Academy of Illustration, Baltimore, MD

Mission Statement

The Baltimore Academy of Illustration offers students of all economic levels the opportunity to receive high-quality, college-level instruction in illustration.

BAI welcomes adult continuing education students, high school students who want to sample college-level illustration courses, and traditional college-age students.

BAI instructors are working illustrators and experienced educators with a variety of complementary experiences and teaching philosophies.

A main tenet of BAI instruction is preparation for professional illustration work—challenging assignments and critiques along with practical knowledge to forge a career in illustration.

Overview

The Baltimore Academy of Illustration is an unaccredited, private institution with one goal in mind: to teach artists who want to be illustrators how to become illustrators. Our hands-on approach and small classes allow us to tailor our courses to meet each student’s needs. Unlike traditional art schools, the Baltimore Academy of Illustration focuses specifically on illustration—learning the art while also understanding the needs and requirements of the profession.

Our teachers are working illustrators who have also taught illustration at the college level.  We offer our classes at a fraction of the cost of a 3-credit art college course and while we don’t hand out diplomas at the Baltimore Academy of Illustration, we believe we have something much more important to give our students: knowledge and experience. Art directors don’t ask to see diplomas. They ask to see portfolios.

We believe that an immersive, well-rounded education in a quality art college is the best route for becoming a professional artist. But we also recognize that many talented artists just cannot afford to invest in a four-year program. We offer the same quality instruction. Our students won’t get the degree but they will get the knowledge they need to compete in the marketplace. We believe that our approach represents a new paradigm in teaching illustration.

Internships Available!

In addition, members have the opportunity to facilitate art-making opportunities and community art projects for community residents, recruit and manage volunteers, develop special projects, and gain valuable professional experience in the community arts and non-profit fields.

The Community Art Collaborative (CAC) is based in the MICA Office of Community Engagement, and is part of a larger National Service network of AmeriCorps programs through out the country. The program offers many benefits, including a living stipend, free healthcare, and a federal Education Award (of around $5,700) that is given at the end of one year of service in the program, which can be used for pursuing future education opportunities. The CAC-AmeriCorps program is funded in part by a grant from the Maryland Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism and the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Members

Full Time/ Paid/ 2017-2018

The CAC-AmeriCorps program is looking for 12 new members for the 2017-18 program (academic) year. Each member is matched with a different grassroots community art organization in Baltimore City, to serve a year-long (September – August) community art residency at that each Site. In these residencies, members primarily facilitate after-school arts-based learning experiences that serve K-12 students in Baltimore City. In addition, members have the opportunity to facilitate art-making opportunities and community art projects for community residents, recruit and manage volunteers, develop special projects, and gain valuable professional experience in the community arts and non-profit fields. A list of our current partner organizations can be found on our website, at: http://www.mica.edu/cac. We are currently working with eleven community arts organizations/institutions in Baltimore, and each year, we usually add a few new partners.
