The Greater Baltimore County, MD Chapter participates in the Regional cross-chapter Pen Pal program to enhance the writing/literacy skills of our children in 1st - 8th grades. 


Children across the participating Chapters are matched based on grade, gender and shared interest with the objective of exchanging three letters over the course of the program year.  Those who participate have an opportunity to meet their Pen Pal in person at the close of the program year.  

The Greater Baltimore County, MD Chapter is proud to have outlined a new element of the program to be included with letter # 2 – a Grow A Family Tree exercise based on guidance from the Eastern Region’s Racial Identity Toolkit!
