The 2021-2022 class of Baltimore Ravens High School Leadership Institute high schoolers completed the program last week, having learned leadership skills and how to be productive members of their communities.
The Baltimore Ravens High School Leadership Institute is hosted by the Ravens and T. Rowe Price and serves 100 Baltimore City and County high school students every year who were selected as by their schools to participate in the program.
The students, some of who recently completed the program, participate in six sessions since the beginning of the school year. The sessions included activities “to develop leadership qualities by engaging with the community, working on a service project and listening to discussions with former Ravens and entrepreneurs,” and topics of focus included, “Lead Yourself,” “Lead Others,” “Lead Change,” and “Lead Community.”
As part of their final session, the 2021-2022 school year participants visited the Maryland Zoo and packaged meals for Rise Against Hunger, a non-profit group that sends food to those in need around the world.
The leadership institute was established in 2019 and, since then, nearly 300 students have completed the program.
