Have you heard about FAR’s Adopt-A-School initiative? Linking architecture firms and Baltimore City Schools.
The Future Architects Resources Committee (FAR) serves as a vehicle for collaboration among professionals and educators (middle and secondary schools, universities, and community colleges,) towards the education of future architects and enlightened citizens of the built environment. Furthermore, the committee is dedicated to increasing exposure among local elementary and middle school aged students to career opportunities in Architecture and Design.
View the FAR brochure.
The committee meets every 2nd Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the AIABaltimore Gallery.
