What is North Star Baltimore?

North Star Baltimore is the official logo of Unified Efforts, Inc.

Designed by TBC, Inc., Baltimore, MD exclusively for Unified Efforts, Inc. (2015)

The North Star is  the brightest star, in Ursa Minor, at the end of the handle of the Little Dipper. The northern axis of the Earth points towards it, and to keep from getting lost the North Star is used in navigation and astronomy. 

The North Star guides our youth and we at Unified Efforts are sure to follow their lead.

Following the North Star - guiding our youth in the right direction

Out of School Time Youth Violence Prevention Center

Our Next Big Thing - A  Youth Center!

With the recent purchased of three city-owned vacant properties, in the Penn-North Community, we are focused on developing a new out of school time youth center.

In doing so, this project will provide a safe out of school time facility for the children, remove blight and stabilize this historic neighborhood.

Additionally, a state of the art youth center that will be an on-site solar energy lab, that will provide community employment opportunities, job training, paid internships, provide opportunities for residents to engage in civic activities and provide peaceable conflict resolution tools.

We need your assistance to make this a reality. Are you in?

Operates in the Penn-North Community


Unified Efforts, Inc. is a nonprofit and no cost to parents out of school time program for children ages 5-17, operating in Baltimore, MD's historic Penn-North (West Baltimore) Community. 

Since 2012 we have provided after-school bullying and violence prevention programs throughout the Baltimore metropolitan area.

Out of school time is when our children are the most vulnerable when it comes to having too much unsupervised time on their hands.

Our programs and activities are well structured, meaningful and youth-led.

Dedicated to the youth, activities are designed to assist students to reach, and sustain their fullest creative potential, meet their academic responsibilities and find peaceable solutions. 

Partners make us better!
