Charting Careers was initially an educational and mentoring program of Box of Rain, a longstanding nonprofit founded in 2003 to provide underserved Annapolis youth with summer maritime experiences. When Box of Rain dissolved in 2018, volunteers and staff originally working with Box of Rain decided to found a new nonprofit organization so that services could continue to one of the highest need populations in our county.

Now, as its own nonprofit, Charting Careers continues to help youth envision their futures and achieve pathways to independence and career success. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty in Annapolis by working individually with youth and their families, while also addressing the systemic issues leading to poverty and inequities in the first place.
