Baltimore-area high school students yesterday celebrated the completion of their participation in this year’s T. Rowe Price and Baltimore Ravens High School Leadership Institute, a program presented by T. Rowe Price and the Baltimore Ravens to encourage and empower students to become collaborative leaders and productive members of their communities.
As part of the April 27th celebration, which took place at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, the students participated in a service project assembling care packages for Rise Against Hunger, an international hunger relief non-profit organization that coordinates the packaging and distribution of food and other aid to people in developing nations.
Through BRLI, which seeks to boost academic performance and facilitate new leadership opportunities for students throughout Baltimore City and Baltimore County, students participated in a handful of sessions to develop leadership qualities through meaningful engagement with community, civic, and business experts. The 2021-2022 cohort of students met throughout the school year for sessions focused on such topics as “Lead Yourself,” “Lead Others,” “Lead Change,” and “Lead Community” and heard from experts including former Ravens Matt Stover and Torrey Smith; Christopher Dipnarine, executive director of 4MyCity; Raymone Jackson, global head of diversity and inclusion for T. Rowe Price; and Dr. Tracey L. Durant, executive director of equity for Baltimore City Public Schools.
The 2021-2022 cohort of students were nominated by their schools to participate in the program and included students from high schools including: Baltimore Design School, Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, Carver Vocational-Technical High School, Catonsville High School, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, Dulaney High School, Edmondson-Westside High School, Franklin High School, Hereford High School, Milford Mill Academy, New Era Academy, New Town High School, Owings Mills High School, Pikesville High School, Randallstown High School, Renaissance Academy, Towson High School, Western High School, Western School of Technology, and Woodlawn High School.
The Baltimore Ravens High School Leadership Institute launched in 2019. Including this cohort, nearly 300 students have completed the program. The program is made possible with support from ADDO, a leadership consultancy that develops programs, products and experiences.
