Project Name: Baltimore City Youth Data Hub (Baltimore City, MD)


  • Baltimore City Health Department
  • Baltimore City Mayor’s Office
  • Baltimore City Public Schools
  • Baltimore’s Promise


The Baltimore City Youth Data Hub aims to improve educational attainment and economic mobility for Baltimore City youth, with a focus on Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and immigrant youth. The Baltimore City Youth Data Hub will use data to identify community needs, shift public and private resources, and drive recommendations for programs and policy.

Through a collaboration between public agencies and community members, the Baltimore City Youth Data Hub will be able to inform the coordination of services, increase access to youth opportunities year-round, and enhance investments in more effective services that holistically support youth and families in Baltimore. Access to regularly produced and integrated data will help city leaders better determine which programs are most effective and can be scaled, make informed decisions impacting funding allocations, and implement policies and approaches that improve the health, well-being, and success of youth and families in Baltimore.

Together with community members, the partnership will co-create accessible data products such as dashboards, interactive maps, reports, and infographics that identify community needs and drive recommendations for programs and policies. The first shared data project, the Summer Engagement Ecosystem, will map enrichment opportunities for youth and assess the availability of youth summer programs in low-income communities.

Thoughts from Community Leaders

“The MADE for Health Justice grant accelerates a process that will have generational impacts on Baltimore youth and families. Our collaboration with Baltimore City government and Baltimore City Public Schools is built on a shared commitment to equity and access, and a shared belief in the brilliance and potential of young people across our city.” – Julia Baez, Chief Executive Officer, Baltimore’s Promise 






“The Baltimore City Youth Data Hub will allow us to work more collaboratively across systems, aligning in ways that improve outcomes for young people in Baltimore City – particularly Black and Latinx young people. By quickly scaling this vital resource, we’ll be able to better understand the gaps and challenges blocking their success and advocate for the opportunities they want, need, and deserve.” – Bridget Blount, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Baltimore’s Promise 





“Across our city and state, through public agencies and thousands of nonprofits, a lot of good people are trying to support our young people. But if our systems don’t talk with each other, and if the data we use doesn’t fully account for longstanding oppression and inequitable access to resources, we’ll never be able to serve young people in the ways they need. The Baltimore City Youth Data Hub will help us to create a structure to better understand those needs, collaborate to determine solutions, and be accountable for improved outcomes. It is an opportunity for our actions to align with what we say is possible for the young people in our city. ” – Dr. Tracey L. Durant, Executive Director of Equity, Baltimore City Public School
