We Need Your Help

The core motivation behind SBLC is to support the desire in each person to learn and excel to the highest point of her or his abilities and potential. Through education, we believe we can customize content to fit the personal, unique needs or professional aspirations of our learners. In other words, what we do best is simple: We make learning work.

As a result, SBLC functions not only to educate adult learners, but also to empower them to succeed: by securing better jobs, enhancing their life skills and personal lives, and contributing to their community.

Please join us as we tap into and reveal the knowledge, capabilities and skills that exist among our community of learners. Help us ensure that learning works to forge the career pathways of learners throughout Baltimore by becoming a volunteer or making a donation today.

Today’s everyday champion is Cecilia Byrd. Achieving her Maryland High School Diploma had been on Cecilia Byrd’s mind since 1992, however, watching her son walk across the stage at Digital Harbor High School followed by her other son returning home with his high school diploma sealed the deal. Ms. Byrd had seen a flyer for South Baltimore Learning Center at her church and decided that it was time for her to be an everyday champion for herself, her family, and her community. In 2013, Ms. Byrd began classes at SBLC.

While Ms. Byrd humbly explains how SBLC staff welcomed her with an open heart making her feel welcomed and appreciated, she glosses over the good cheer she brings with her when she comes in for class and tutoring. Ms. Byrd can often be found encouraging other learners and offering words of wisdom and support when needed.

After SBLC, Ms. Byrd plans to go on to college for a business degree so that she can open her own cleaning company.
