I Went to Take Pictures, But What I Saw Changed My Perspective on Baltimore

A few weeks ago I was invited to tag along as the photographer on a site visit to Year Up Baltimore, the local branch of a professional job training corps for young people in 17 U.S. cities. Partners from our EquipYouth initiative were visiting from as far as Brazil and South Africa, and they were eager to exchange experiences and information with this organization that trains Baltimore’s youth in ways that parallel their own work and what IYF does. And me? As a long-time resident who loves this city for better or worse, I was curious to see Year Up’s impact here.
