Resiliency in Communities After Stress & Trauma (ReCAST) promotes resilience, support and health in marginalized communities that have faced civil unrest through implementation of trauma-informed, violence prevention, and community engagement.


Working through two specialized youth-cohorts, we provide youth with the necessary tools to critically examine policy and practices that prolong, ignite, or perpetuate a consistent degradation of quality of life for young Baltimoreans.

Professional Development:

Through public and private partnerships, we provide our cohort members with specialized trainings and workshops from a cadre of topics and skilled volunteers who want to see youth in our city grow into responsible socially conscious doers.


Upon completion of the program, the cohorts will collectively agree on 5 policy recommendations that address the quality of life for youth in Baltimore, but primarily in the 21217 area-code which saw upheaval in 2015, after the murder of Freddie Gray. Working through partnerships and our inaugural Youth Advisory Council, we will galvanize community members around these proposals and sojourn to see them come to fruition.
