The Baltimore Free School is a grassroots, volunteer-run and community-funded project, based at 512-516 W. Franklin St. Building upon a long tradition of horizontal organizing, collaborative learning and participatory education, we believe that the empowerment of people of all ages and backgrounds to share and learn is vital to the health of any community. To that end, we work toward creating a space where the exchange of ideas can occur without the exchange of money; a space where we can learn to relate to each other in new and meaningful ways. By building this infrastructure, we hope to form a microcosm of the world in which we want to live.
Every course offered through the Baltimore Free School is 100% free of charge to learners. Sign up online today!
