We are the DC affiliate of a national organization whose mission is to surround students with a caring network of support so that they are empowered to stay in school and acheive in life. We partner with 7 schools across the metro area: Cardozo Education Campus, Hart Middle, Johnson Middle School, Stuart Hobson Middle, Moten Elementary, Martin Luther King Elementary and JO Wilson Elementary.

We have various opportunities for you to be a part of the work that we do. If interested in volunteering, please please fill out our volunteer application ( and someone will follow up with you promptly with a full list of volunteer opportunities and next steps.

Some of the current volunteer opportunities include:

  • Help run a food market for children and families in need
  • Join a group of others to help care for a school's community Garden
  • Hold a holiday food and/or toy drive for the upcoming holiday season
  • Participate in Report Card Conferences (held quartlerly) by sitting down with individual students to discuss their grades and attendance
  • Tutor/be a homework helper for a child in need of academic support
  • ...and there's much more that happens over the course of the school year.
