Our Mission

Community at our Core

LEVEL82 – Leveraging the power of community collaboration to enable ALL Baltimore families to reach their full potential.


Navigating the Journey Ahead

Hard work. Optimism. Grit. Collaboration. Strength. At our core, LEVEL82 believes in the ability of every individual to reach their full potential, regardless of where they started their journey.


Our Journey

Co-founded by Torrey and Chanel Smith, LEVEL82 strives to create a gathering space for those who live, work and play in Baltimore City while developing strategically-curated programming to empower the community. Aligned with the mission to leverage the power of collaboration to enable families to reach their full potential, Torrey and Chanel bring their personal experiences, commitment, resources, and passion to the community. In partnership with Baltimore City Recreation and Parks, the Hilton Recreation Center will host LEVEL82 programs including academic support, athletic and enrichment activities, mental health resources, and social services. Together, we will create a more equitable society that we all deserve, want, and need.
