About Our Auction
Adult education is an often overlooked, but nevertheless important, element of helping to build neighborhoods, strengthen people, and improve economic self-sufficiency for undereducated and underemployed people. Strong City Baltimore’s Adult Learning Center (ALC) is a non-profit organization that provides high-quality, learner-centered instruction to help Baltimore residents increase their academic skills, employability, and overall quality of life. We have done this for the last 30 years, at no cost to our learners. Last year, 510 learners enrolled in the ALC and 82 percent of all learners increased their post-test scores, showing their progression of readiness.
Every Spring, we celebrate our learners at Achievement Night, our graduation. At Achievement Night, learners’ families and friends get to see them walk across a stage after months, and sometimes years, of hard work. This will be the second consecutive virtual Achievement Night due to COVID-19. We will again be hosting Achievement Night on Facebook Live and pairing that with a silent auction, the proceeds of which will go the ALC as a gift from the class of 2021.
Please bid on these items in celebration of the class of 2021!
