SLYC is an organization of families, neighbors, and partners in West Baltimore City. We have grown over the years by continuously adjusting to meet the needs, hopes, and dreams of our families and youth. For over 7 years we operated in the basement of a dilapidated church, free of charge. The worshiping community there was recently shut down. The Episcopal Diocese of MD and SLYC have since developed an MOU to work towards redeveloping the property as a campus of culture and education.
SLYC is a community of families, neighbors, volunteers, and partners working together to provide the youth of West Baltimore with quality resources, experiences, and supports- the kind all children need to thrive.
Saint Luke's Youth Center, Inc. (SLYC) is a grass-roots community cooperative offering a wide range of opportunities and resources for children living in West Baltimore. Programs include daily after-school enrichment, social-emotional learning (SEL) and engagement, community dinners, summer camp, and much, much more. SLYC kids benefit from the coordination of efforts among families, school, neighbors, partners, volunteers, and program staff. We are a network of people working to ensure that every child has safe, healthy, supportive, and loving experiences- the kind all children need to thrive.
SLYC programming is completely free to our youth and families. We depend on the kindness and generosity of people like you to help us continue and grow.
