Many students that officially drop out of school each year are under the age of sixteen. In Maryland, during 2014-2015, 7,072 students (covering grades 9 through 12) dropped out of school. For Baltimore City that number was 1,549. We need a solution to keep at-risk youth engaged in school. The ElmSeed Foundation provides a catalyst program to support " kids on the cusp" as not all students excel in traditional learning environments.

We offer integrated programs to support learning, communication, and the building of life skills. Our goal is to do more by doing things differently. By offering this program after school, on the weekends, and during the summer, we offer one of those support programs that Maryland needs.

Your donations will directly support students that are struggling and discouraged to learn fundamental skills that support and enhance the traditional academic school curriculum by emphasizing project based learning, collaboration, competency, problem solving, and conflict resolution while building self-esteem and appropriate self-expression.

My name is Linda Hazlehurst and I am the voice and vision for The ElmSeed Foundation. Together we can achieve the following:

Thinking Alternatively. Our program is a means to reengage students before they fail a grade, permanently drop out of school, or as a bootstrap program to reenter school.

Delivering Differently. We provide a healthy, balanced, and creative environment so that students can learn and see progress.

Achieving Exceptionally. By laying a deeply rooted foundation, with dedicated and creative cultivation and pruning, we strive to yield strong individuals, students, and youth communities.
