Patterson High School
100 Kane Street, Baltimore, MD 21224
RYP’s after-school program at Patterson High School brings together refugee high school students from across the city of Baltimore. Youth and volunteers work to complete homework assignments, practice English, and review basic skills. Students also receive help applying for jobs, exploring post-secondary education options, and learning about American culture.
This site serves refugee youth and young humanitarian migrants from DR Congo, Eritrea, Syria, and Sudan, ages 13-21, who are in 9th through 12th grades and enrolled in the Refugee School Impact program services. It focuses on students who have been in the U.S. for three years or less, with particular emphasis on students who have been in Baltimore for less than one year.

RYP prepares young refugees not only to live in the Baltimore City area, but anywhere in the U.S. They learn lessons and values to help them grow and adapt to any environment as sound human beings.Saran
