The UA House at Fayette operated by Living Classrooms is the heartbeat of the Baltimore Target Investment Zone and serves over one hundred students daily with academic enrichment, health, sports and physical fitness education, and career development. It also serves adults with workforce development, career services, entrepreneurial development, and GED and ESL support. Services have been developed as a response to the community’s assessed need for intervention that supports the academic and social development of youth by providing year-round out-of-school-time programming for elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as adults living in East Baltimore. The youth and adults served at this center reside primarily in the Pleasant View Gardens community and other nearby public housing and under-resourced neighborhoods whose communities lack many of the services found in more affluent areas.
In 2016, Living Classrooms received a significant long-term investment from Kevin Plank and Under Armour to renovate the site formerly known as the Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center. The revamped UA House at Fayette operated by Living Classrooms features 30,000 square feet of space that includes the addition of a covered turf field, sponsored by the Baltimore Ravens, a revitalized tutoring center, workforce development and entrepreneurship lab, a dance and yoga studio, a music education and recording studio, and a neighborhood kitchen operated in partnership with the American Heart Association.
Services at the center are focused in five cornerstone areas: Education; Character and Leadership; Health, Wellness, &Fitness; Community Engagement & Service; and Entrepreneurship & Workforce Development. In addition, the Center hosts a number of community events such as youth workshops and conferences, health and wellness and job fairs, financial literacy workshops, family engagement activities, and sports tournaments.
