Yelp Awards SBLC $5,000


The South Baltimore Learning Center has received a $5,000 grant from the Yelp Foundation, having been nominated and voted in by community members in the Yelp Foundation Gives Local grant contest.

Of the many nonprofits considered for recognition, only three in the Baltimore area were nominated to participate, which awarded $10,000 total to local nonprofits. SBLC was the first-place winner.

“The Yelp Foundation’s support for SBLC’s adult literacy efforts means that more adults in Baltimore will have the opportunity to begin their journey toward achieving their Maryland high school diplomas,” said SBLC executive director Annmarie Westerfield. “These funds allow us to serve more learners through our off-site class partnerships. By bringing pre-GED and GED classes to Baltimore neighborhoods most in need of our service, we are able to remove the transportation barriers for our students and increase their access to education, life-skills training and
career counseling services.”
