The Inner Harbor Project is a collaborative youth after-school program in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor dedicated to making the Harbor safe and inclusive. The goal of this project is to teach youth they can be agents of social change through research and activism. Throughout the school year, student leaders (two from each public high school in the city) will design and implement a series of focus groups with their peers to build a critical ethnography of the space. After data is collected and analyzed, students will hold a press conference to formally release their suggestions for improving the Harbor. Finally, they will create and execute a plan for implementation.
