Bowdoin Bound is a 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to exposing young students from Baltimore’s inner city to the educational opportunities that exist beyond the confines of their respective communities. Each summer we bring more than 30 students up to Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine for a week of camp and/or educational activities. The goal is to get the students to begin to aspire to attend college at an early age and to understand that colleges and universities like Bowdoin, Harvard or Williams are not out of reach. The hope is that instilling these goals at an early age will motivate them in the classroom and help them understand the importance of working hard at school.
