Living Classrooms operates in both Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC to strengthen communities and inspire young people to achieve their potential through hands-on education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources as "living classrooms."

Our shipboard programs provide unique experiential education opportunities for all ages aboard historic Chesapeake Bay workboats. These interdisciplinary programs explore local waterways through hands-on activities, emphasize applied learning in math, science, engineering, and history, and utilize teamwork and cooperative learning. All programs are aligned to local and national education standards. We also offer boat charters, which are perfect for birthday parties and other private functions. Passengers can help the crew, take the wheel, participate in science activities, or simply enjoy the beautiful scenery.

These dynamic, "learning by doing" programs emphasize applied learning in math, science, social studies, language arts, and social skills. The programs serve students from a variety of backgrounds and economic means and range in length from one-day expeditions for school and youth groups to extended shipboard and land/sea programs.

The Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students (BUGS) Program works with children from under-served Baltimore City communities throughout the year with an after-school program as well as a summer program. The program's primary goal is to empower and inspire our children to develop academically, creatively, and socially. The BUGS program serves students from Commodore John Rodgers Elementary and Middle School in East Baltimore. Many of our students reside in public housing and low-income neighborhoods near the Baltimore City Detention Center. These students have little access to green space and few extra-curricular activities available to them. The program engages youth in learning while providing them with a safe and healthy alternative to the streets. BUGS is a national model program that uses activities such as cooking, gardening, creative arts and movement, and entrepreneurial projects to help increase academic performance in reading and math and improve student behavior. The program provides a dynamic learning environment at Living Classrooms East Harbor campus, with access to vegetable and flower gardens planted by the students, and the only wetlands on Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
