How Can We Reach and Create Belonging for Baltimore Youth?

At MissionFit, our goal has always been to instill change in the landscape of Baltimore’s youth, health and wellness by creating a supportive community centered around fitness. With all of the restrictions and challenges of the last year, it’s only natural that finding a sense of belonging has been difficult for many individuals throughout Baltimore. Luckily, there are many groups like MissionFit out there who are reaching our youth and helping create a sense of belonging every day. Here are some of the programs making a positive impact throughout Baltimore!

B-360 exists at the unlikely intersection of three lanes: unrecognized potential, dirt bike culture and STEM education. Through STEM education, community engagement, career preparation and events, B-360 equips youth and young adults with the skills to secure educational and career opportunities while changing the negative perception of dirt bike riders.

The BYKE Collective

There is room for everyone between ages 10-24 at BYKE, whether you are looking to brush up on bicycle maintenance or simply be part of a thriving bike community.
