We are an urban ministry in Washington, D.C. seeking to open doors of opportunity, empowerment, and friendship. Our focus is on the children and the youth in the city, and their families. We welcome the participation and support of all who want to serve and share in building communities of inclusion and hope.
For over 20 years, we have worked to empower at-risk children through transformative, science and technology-based education, which was borne out of our vision; that justice and equity for all persons begins with enabling them to function and compete in the workplace.

Our free programs provide academic enrichment, help with homework, a chance to explore subjects like art and science, computer-based learning, recreation, and nutritious dinner to keep children’s minds fueled and active.
Our programs with children have naturally evolved to include Summer Youth employment and adult education, also including literacy, work readiness, and in-depth parenting programs.
Our camps expand horizons through field trips, service learning, varied enrichment activities, sports, and more. Together, camps and afterschool programs serve over 400 children and provide over 30,000 meals annually.
Everyone has a role to play in shaping the hearts and minds of today’s underprivileged youth. Make an impact today!
