Restore Baltimore is a partnership between the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), a nationally ranked premier trade school and Maryland’s largest workforce training provider, and the B&O Railroad Museum, the birthplace of American railroading, to deliver a targeted, applied, and intensive workforce development program for the under-employed. This innovative program marries excellent skilled trades instruction with critical wrap-around services while providing students an opportunity to apply their work on the Museum’s 40-acre campus. Students will be paid a living-wage of $15 an hour to work and learn full-time for six months and have the opportunity to gain experience in restoration/construction trades, facilities management, or rail operations. Employers have committed to interview the students upon completion of the program. The initial pilot program is for three years, two cohorts per year. This program is an investment in West Baltimore.

See video below for program overview with our first cohort.
