Adopt-A-School – Fostering partnerships between local architecture firms and Baltimore City schools.

History

Kids-in-Design (KID’s) was founded in 1987 as a forum in which architects and other design professionals collaborate to develop community outreach programs directed toward Baltimore’s youngest citizens (pre-kindergarten through 12th grade), their parents and teachers. KID’s has conducted a variety of activities in schools, at museums and at special events to introduce architectural design and urban planning concepts to children in the Baltimore region. Today, Kids in Design has merged with AIABaltimore’s Future Architects Resources (FAR) to continue in its mission to engage students in design related activities and introduce them to career paths in architecture and design.

Mission

The Future Architects Resources Committee (FAR) serves as a vehicle for collaboration among professionals and educators (middle and secondary schools, universities, and community colleges,) towards the education of future architects and enlightened citizens of the built environment. Furthermore, the committee is dedicated to increasing exposure among local elementary and middle school aged students to career opportunities in Architecture and Design.
