Community Service in Baltimore

Today our hard-working sailors spent the morning at the KIPP School in Baltimore, visiting middle and elementary school classes, sharing their experiences at sea, and assisting in the science classes. The Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP) is a nationwide network of free open-enrollment college-preparatory schools in under-resourced communities throughout the U.S. Our Ocean Classroom students, accompanied by Captain Tom, felt like rock-stars as they talked about where they were from and how they had sailed to Baltimore. The KIPP students were thrilled.

As we practice creating a strong community on board Roseway, it's a great thing to be able to share those values in the broader communities we visit. For a photo journal of the day, click here.
