We try to make a difference in our students lives,
so they can try to make a difference in the world!

OUR MISSION

The “Growing Griots” are the youth component of the Griot Circle of Maryland.

 

The Griots Circle of Maryland is the local affiliate of the National Association of Black Story Tellers (NABS). The Growing Griots Literacy Learning Program is our “In House” family literacy program designed to upgrade skills in reading, writing, listening, public speaking, critical thinking, and the ability to follow directions.

 

We also offer our basic skill development, cultural enrichment, and leadership development to the community in collaborations with schools, museums, community programs and initiatives.
