Unified Efforts is a non-profit founded in 2014 by Executive Director Debbie Ramsey to reduce out-of-school learning loss and provide academic enrichment, leadership development, and college/career readiness in the Penn North neighborhood of West Baltimore. To date, we have served over 120 school age students. Even as the coronavirus pandemic rages through our communities, learning loss remains a critical issue in our neighborhood and we are hopeful that at some point soon we can safely resume our face-to-face (or mask-to-mask!) activities.
Our mission is simple: reduce summer learning loss. Provide specialty, multipurpose and academic programs for students year round to minimize academic loss when school aged children are out of school for extended times. Our programs and activities include financial literacy, free dental screenings, aviation-aerospace, cooking with whole foods, athletic activities, the arts, writing, swim lessons, by certified swimming instructors, and bullying prevention activities.

Building STEPS (Science Technology And Education Partnerships Inc.) mission is to equip our city’s brightest students with the tools to propel them to college and career success. As a small organization that makes a profound difference in the lives of a Baltimore City youth, Building STEPS highly successful model relies on strong partnerships and expert volunteers. This crucial collaboration and commitment enables hundreds of students each year to benefit from programming and ultimately achieve college and career success.
Tutoring has been an integral part of our programming over the years. With students engaged in full-time remote learning, we anticipate a greater need for academic tutoring support. Time commitment will vary but will remain flexible and convenient for all involved.
Our students take a variety of classes- Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II and some pre-Calculus. But what we have found recently that many students are not solid on basic math concepts, despite the level of math they are taking in school. So tutoring is two-fold, supporting them in their current subject class, but also reinforcing basic math skills so they are more confident moving into SATs (if they even happen this year) and into college level math. All tutoring is available virtually.
For more information on Building STEPS: www.buildingsteps.org.
If you are interested in math based tutoring and homework support, please contact Jennifer Descoteau at firstname.lastname@example.org.
