Who is Youth Rising Coalition?
We are the Youth Rising Coalition; an ambitious group of likeminded 14 to 24 year old entrepreneurs and youth with a firm belief in job creation in Baltimore, Maryland. Our solution is youth entrepreneurship and enterprise, allowing us to create opportunities for ourselves and our families, and be a model for other youth in the city. We are creative and full of hustle: all we need is the support of the community to improve our own lives and the lives of those like us.
Youth Rising Coalition Priorities
