Two of the new Open Society Institute-Baltimore Community Fellows are dedicated to supporting and uplifting students in Baltimore City schools.

With her project, Represent Youth: Baltimore School Justice Initiative, Aarti Sidhu provides legal representation for students facing expulsion and suspension; the idea is to make sure they know their rights and what resources are available to them. Ciera Daniel helps African-American boys in elementary school build confidence through mentoring, education and the power of positive affirmation, with the 'Young Kings Leadership Academy.'
