We’re looking for practical idealists: people who don’t give in to hopelessness. People who embrace agency grounded in empathy. People who strive for a better world. Together, we can transform the civic culture of DC and beyond.

Last year, we recruited 2,700 volunteer tutors and mentors to help underprivileged DC kids flourish. Let’s double that number in 2023.

In this volunteer opportunity, you will learn the skills to execute civic outreach, practice self-care, and will work with a team to foster a better community.

60,000 children in the District of Columbia need extra support. You can help them get it while boosting your personal and professional growth, while creating a better world for all of us.
