Khalil Bridges, recent alumni of Renaissance Academy High School in Baltimore City, was recently featured in the Washington Post article, Coming of age in a city coming apart . Khalil has overcome so much on his journey to graduate from high school and we are so proud of him.
His goals for the next year are to find a job and to attend community college. The funds raised on this page will cover his tuition, books and supplies, transportation, and living expenses.

In the words of Principal Rowe Khalil is a student that has “demonstrated evolvement and resiliency....who stepped forward to fight for Renaissance’s survival by speaking in Annapolis, at the White House and in New Mexico, and who was recently selected to serve on the Baltimore Youth Commission".

Hi, everyone!
We just wanted to post an update to all of you generous donors...
Khalil has successfully enrolled in community college full time for the fall semester and purchased books and school supplies.
He moved into his own apartment at the end of August and is settling in nicely. He was able to pay his renter's insurance for the year and set up automatic bill pay for his utilities.
He is still working at McDonald's but transferred to a new location closer to his new apartment.
He is doing great! Thank you again for your kind words of encouragement

Khalil, your story has touched so many. Like many of us who've read the WaPo article, we don't know you personally, but that's never stopped anyone from caring! Keep pushing young man and great opportunities will continue to present themselves. You've already made it! Peace & Love
