Through a creative, arts-based, Rites of Passage cultural process, The Youth Resiliency Institute offers training and an array of liberatory offerings to children, youth and adults.
The Youth Resiliency Institute is dedicated to inspiring realization of the authentic self in children, youth and young adults in Baltimore. We encourage and support authentic living in the service of just, joyful and sustainable communities.
The Youth Resiliency Institute views the transition of youth to adulthood not as a time of risk but as a time of profound promise. The exemplary ways in which Black children and youth create meaningful identities in relation to larger political forces carry rich activist ingredients and draw from the Black community’s existing strengths and restorative capacity.
