Hood2Harbor is a teen-led movement to affect positive change in the Inner Harbor. The Inner Harbor Project employs 25 Peace Ambassadors who are responsible for spreading positivity among teenagers at the Inner Harbor. Hood2Harbor is an effort to change the culture of cool. Peace Ambassadors have been selected for their leadership potential and their ability to be change agents among their peers.
Peace Ambassadors are present in the Inner Harbor on Friday and Saturday evenings from 7-9 pm during the summer time. They are also on call for weekday evenings if there is an event that draws teenagers to the Harbor. During the fall and spring, Peace Ambassadors are in the Harbor from 4-5 pm immediately after school lets out. Peace Ambassadors spread out over three posts: (1) Harborplace Amphitheater to Pier 4, (2) Harborplace Amphitheater to Kaufman Pavilion, and (3) McKeldin Square to The Gallery. Peace Ambassadors are recognizable by the blue Hood2Harbor t-shirts they wear. They network with other teens through speaking with them about the Inner Harbor Project’s mission and getting them involved in our teen mediation, Harbor Card, and Code of Etiquette initiatives.
Hood2Harbor is not interventionary. Peace Ambassadors are charged with spreading positivity. Teens will support IHP’s mission by wearing a #SupportIHP button when they visit the Harbor.
