BALTIMORE — One group says more Baltimore City schools needs more male volunteers and they're rallying to get more support.

Hundreds came to help the Baltimore Teachers Union Network and their call to action for not only more volunteers, but to put more awareness on school safety and losing students to violence in the city.

"This is a crisis and so we came together with the interfaith community to bring the churches, the mosques, the synagogues together with the teachers and students to support them and encouraging our men," said Executive Director of the Baltimore Teacher Network, Elijah Etheridge.

If you want to volunteer, the first class is this Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Baltimore Teacher Network Headquarters on Madison Avenue. The goal is to have at least six parents for each school which would be a little more than one thousand volunteers.
