A growth of Loyola University Maryland's 2008-13 Strategic Plan to “take a leadership role in the development of a multi-dimensional plan to improve the quality of life for all persons living, working, and learning in the York Road corridor,” Loyola's York Road Initiative (YRI) is a place-based community development strategy geographically focused in the York Road corridor communities of north Baltimore City adjacent to the university’s campus. 

 Our mission is to collaborate with neighbors and partners to produce positive change in our York Road community.

Our vision is a strong network of connected partners that share resources to grow a healthy York Road community for all.

We work together with neighbors and partners to enhance area education and youth development, build civic capacity and strengthen the York Road commercial corridor.
