#6 Youth Engagement & Support / Resources

There is a lack of resources and support available to youth in Baltimore, and this lack of support can lead youth to engage in negative behaviors that impact their health and the health of their communities.

Why it matters

Youth in Baltimore face a wide variety of issues at home and in their communities — such as a lack of resources / support at school, economic and food instability, parents / guardians facing addiction and / or mental illness — that can lead youth to engage in unsafe behaviors. This issue is exacerbated by the fact that there are few existing programs that provide opportunities to engage youth and provide resources to them.

What does "good" look like?

Youth have access to programs and other opportunities that can provide resources that support their health, safety, and long-term development.
