Peace Park Learning Center will bring resources and access to technology to Southwest Baltimore

Baltimore, MD — Stillmeadow Community Fellowship’s Peace Park Learning Center is coming to Baltimore residents this month to promote literacy and access to technology resources in the 21229 ZIP code and beyond. All are encouraged to join Stillmeadow Community Fellowship and their local partners on February 22, 2022 for an afternoon of exploration and fun.

The event will showcase the technology resources, learning opportunities and workforce development programs offered at the Learning Center. Programming in the space will support all age groups and walks of life with engaging activities around computer literacy, education and health offered free of charge.

Stillmeadow has partnered with three neighboring schools in the 21229 ZIP code to provide students with technology and internet access, which teachers have cited as one of the main issues impacting school results. learning, especially during COVID. Five primary, middle and high school students will have access to laptops with wi-fi connection. The cohort of 15 students will participate in STEAM activities to enrich learning opportunities at the Peace Park Learning Center every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 3-6 p.m., with programming officially beginning Wednesday, February 23, 2022.

“West Baltimore and the communities of Charm City deserve access to technology, high-quality information and learning resources,” said Aaron Greenberg, executive director of Libraries Without Borders US. “We are proud to partner with Stillmeadow to make a difference in the fight for digital equity.”

The disparities created by the “digital divide” have a domino effect that leaves few aspects of American life untouched. The burden of accessing technology to complete college and professional training increases when basic computer skills are ineffective.

“Some people have access to technology but don’t know how to use the devices properly,” Stillmeadow pastor Michael Martin said. “On the contrary, there are those who do not have access to technology, but who are aware of it.”

“Here at Stillmeadow Community Fellowship, our goal is to bridge the gap in need, serving as a pillar that provides resources within our community.”
