The GiveBAC is focused on reconnecting Private School Alumni, specifically former members of the Black Awareness Club, for a good time and a good cause.
The goal of this event is to gather Black Alumni and make new memories while raising funds for our GiveBAC Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to either:
a current student
recent high-school graduate
who is connected to one of the network institutions and Black affinity group.
The GiveBAC was first hosted in 2017! At that time, the recipient, a 2016 Roland Park Country School Graduate, was a student at Temple University and used the $500 scholarship to purchase books for that semester.

BACK TO SCHOOL BRUNCH
Inspiring Girls to Be More...
On August 5th, 2023, we inspired girls, in the 6th through 12th grade, to Be More at our exclusive Be More Belles Back to School Brunch. As they prepared to return to school for the 2023-2024 school year, we believe that August was the perfect opportunity to set our girls up for success!
With pressures from society, friends, and social media, Be More Baddies, Inc. is taking a proactive approach to prepare the attendees with the necessary tools and resources to be successful. The day included:
2 Women-Led Workshops that focused on:
Social Media and Cyberbullying
Peer-pressure and Self-confidence
Icebreakers and other enrichiching activites that inspire the attendees to Be More and empower them to engage in conversations
At the annual Back to School Brunch, the Be More Baddies are taking the time to remind each attendee of how exceptional they are. The girls leave the Be More Belles Back to School Brunch with an increase in confidence, character, and charisma.
