Get Involved

Practical educational and civic transformation.

There are many ways you can assist a child in the District who needs additional academic and non-academic support. Join us in our journey toward empowering DC students and transforming the community.


Volunteers are at the heart of DC Tutoring and Mentoring Initiative. Strengthening and empowering local youth by creating one-on-one relationships results in changing the lives of both the student and the tutor/ mentor. Ultimately, this wholly and authentically transforms communities.

Sign up as a tutor or a mentor to support a child in need, and see the impact you can have on your community.
