Breaking The Cycle For Baltimore's Female Teen

A new nonprofit organization, Urban Artemis illustrates the power of education, counseling and discussing teenagers’ concerns

 
PRLog - Oct. 30, 2012 - BALTIMORE –Angel “Angelbaby” Carpenter takes off her headphones to help mentor young girls through a new nonprofit organization. Urban Artemis founded by Carpenter, a disc jockey and personality for 92.3 FM and registered nurse, Cynthia Scott is set to launch this November.

Urban Artemis will kick off its first event with the Winter Warm Up Charity Drive which will begin on November 5 and last through November 15. This event will collect new or gently used coats, boots and winter apparel in various locations across the city.

In January 2013, Urban Artemis will begin its tour to selected neighborhoods and schools targeting high school aged girls ages 13 to 18. The program will consist of weekly workshops covering a variety of topics including: teen issues, etiquette and college. In Baltimore city, Bachelor’s degrees and other advanced diplomas make up only 25.2 percent of the population, an alarming statistic that helped Carpenter and Scott coin the phrase “inspiring to aspire,” a company motto that focuses on educating, uplifting and motivating its students.

Carpenter, a city staple, is an advocate for public service hosting a series of events from The BET Music Matters Concert, Hip Hop in Pink and Hip Hop for the Homeless. “Growing up in Baltimore, I can really relate to the challenges that teenage girls are faced with everyday. So it’s important for them to have their own community to support each other, talk about their life after high school and start having other important conversations,” says Carpenter. This program will organize community events to aid in the growth and development of Baltimore’s youth.
