  Art Days of Summer Arts Arts Art Days of Summer” is a camp that aims to improve the critical thinking of children by allowing them to make calculated decisions when creating their art. Though art is fun, children will build on useful life skills and meet and conquer challenges through artistic expression. When students paint, draw or collage pictures they are learning to communicate visually.  Through group projects they are learning how to take turns and to value one another’s efforts.  Art helps students make their own judgment while also showing them that a problem has more than one solution.This camp also aspires to help students develop an appreciation for Art. Campers will explore famous and local Artists and their work. They will also learn to critique through description and analyzing. Through exploration students will learn that there are no mistakes in Art and learn to make adjustments.  At camp children will be encouraged to think creatively and openly without being confined to conventional rules.

Art Days of Summer is an  Art based program.  We expose our campers to using different art materials as well as different Art techniques.  We take weekly field trips that parallel the themes of our program.  There will be a weekly spotlight “Artist of the Week”. Every week for the duration of the summer program, one or more students will have the opportunity to show his or her art. Along with the student’s display a short bio will be written about him/her.  Students will be introduced to and explore a range of Art terminology such as montage, perspective, contour lines and Art styles such as, Abstract, Pop Art and Expressionism.

Beacon House also engages over 300 boys and girls annually in an award-winning athletics program which reinforces the importance of school and the prioritization of education.  This program’s flagship offering is a national championship-winning football program which attracts boys and girls across DC. The Physical Activity Special Interest Group of the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM), a multidisciplinary nonprofit with a vision of "better health through behavioral change," honored Beacon House in 2016 with its Local Innovator Award, given to organizations making outstanding and innovative contributions to the health of a community via physical activity promotion.   

Beacon House is unique among greater Washington area after-school organizations as a place-based organization which builds relationships with children and families over many years.  Scores of people who grew up coming to Beacon House have volunteered as academic tutors and athletics program coaches, and some now have children of their own in our programs.  For these reasons and others, Beacon House has become an integral component of the social fabric of Edgewood.

Overall we have an athletics and education program that services about 350 students and community members in the edgewood community Mon-Friday 9am-7pm.

  Boolean Girl Inc STEM STEM Boolean Girl was created to address the declining numbers of girls and women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields by providing girls in grades three through eight with meaningful, hands-on instruction and sustained exposure to computer science and engineering in a collaborative and welcoming environment.  We provide after school clubs, enrichment classes, summer camps and special events designed to inspire and encourage girls in third through eighth grades to code, build, invent and animate. Over the course of each 60-75 minute class of 8-12 students, girls (and sometimes boys) work both independently and collaboratively through Scratch, Advanced Scratch, and physical computing projects that are initially provided by the instructors, but are later determined by the children’s imagination and interests as they engage in self-directed learning. In this way, content and learning builds from week to week and from one semester to the next providing a successive and comprehensive experience over the course of the year. Our curriculum, a set of progressively challenging project-based lessons, sparks an interest in girls while they are in elementary school and allows girls to stay engaged through middle school which helps them to enter high school computer science classes on an even footing with their male peers. Clubs typically meet weekly for in 8-10 week sessions for 60-75 minutes each week. Camps may vary from one to five days, and special events are customized based on the needs and purpose of the event.

  Choose To Evolve Community and Family EngagementHealth and WellnessSocial EmotionalWrap Around Services Social Emotional Choose to Evolve's™ (CTE) mission is to encourage growth and build value in personal and professional evolution. We inspire generations of resilience from wombs to classrooms through social-emotional projects, initiatives and collaborations. Our programs address these challenges collaboratively from the inside out. 

Stop the Drama Parent Development Institute™, a project of Choose to Evolve™, is a unique parent leadership development program that inspires family and community resilience through the cultivation of mindfulness, personal development, maternal agency and social-emotional awareness. It is our belief that resilience is the key to resolving childhood adversity such as ACE's.

(ACE's is an acronym for Adverse Childhood Experiences. It represents a collection of childhood exposures that harm the child’s developing brain to the point of causing adverse mental, physical and cognitive outcomes. Adversities include but are not limited to: physical/emotional neglect; physical/emotional/sexual abuse; absent parent, household violence, an incarcerated or addicted family member, and/or someone in the household who is living with mental illness).

"The Parenting with Ease" course helps parents identify the emotional triggers that cause unresolved issues. These triggers impact their ability to respond with awareness of their child’s specific needs. In this class, parents and guardians develop self-awareness and emotional intelligence as they learn to identify the difference between the present moment and past emotions. Having this new awareness, parents can have more harmonious communications with their children. The course is based on mindfulness.

Although there are books about raising children, there are NO books for parents about raising THEIR child. Parents with multiple children are also faced with feeling a lack of agency, regarding how to parent children with different personalities and needs. This can lead to feelings of discomfort, uncertainty doubt and frustration that result in dramatic and challenging outcomes. Missing from this scenario would be a feeling of peace and confidence and an opportunity to respond with present awareness.

Peace exists even when peace is not felt. The practice of mindfulness helps us to connect more with that possibility. Peace is in every breath. Being present to the moment helps parents respond to each child with a focus on that child’s specific needs, as opposed to reacting to that child through the lens of the parent’s past trigger.
During the course of the program, parents will learn about ACEs, stress hormones, mindfulness, parenting, healthy living and reproductive health. (Classes are also available to staff). 

The package for adults is available as a 6 session series, or as  12 standalone ala cart workshops. 

Children will learn STEM-based subjects such as mindfulness, healthy living and coding. We typically work with schools 2 - 3 days a week, which includes a Saturday session for parents (evenings if necessary).

  Critical Exposure ArtsCommunity and Family Engagement Civics/Social Studies Critical Exposure teaches youth how to use the power of photography and their own voices to become effective advocates for school reform and social change. We partner with schools, youth programs, and community groups to connect art and advocacy. Our Goal is to create:

-Youth Empowerment: Provide students with training in documentary photography, leadership, and advocacy; teach them how to document issues that impact their lives; and help them to use their images and voices to advocate for positive solutions to those issues. 

-Public Engagement-Inform and engage the public by using students' photos and writing to create traveling exhibits that are shown in galleries, coffee shops, and other public spaces.

-Real Change: Teach youth how to use their photos and voices to hold adults accountable for solutions that improve their schools and communities.
-Partner-based programs engage young people directly at their local school or community organization. Partner programs meet twice a week over the course of a semester or a year at a partner site. Critical Exposure staff members travel to the site and work with a group of 10-15 youth, training them in photography and community organizing techniques while supporting them as youth leaders to run their own campaign to make change within their school or community. A typical program meets 36 program hours over 1 semester, or 72 program hours over 2 semesters. We run 2-3 programs each semester or 2-3 year-long programs.

- Youth Internship Program is an introductory program. Staff members work with a group of 10-15 youth, training them in photography and community organizing techniques, while also building their capacities as leaders. Youth meet twice a week for 12 weeks at Critical Exposure’s offices for approximately 44 program hours, culminating in a youth led photo exhibit of their work. We run two sessions of the Youth Internship per school year.

-Fellowship Program is an advanced Youth Leadership program for young people who have completed the Youth Internship or partner-based program. Students strengthen their photography and organizing skills, develop meeting facilitation skills, develop their own city-wide campaign, and travel to conferences and trainings as members of Critical Exposure. Fellowship meets twice a week for the entire school year at Critical Exposure’s offices for approximately 125 program hours.

-Summer Youth Facilitator Institute is an opportunity for young leaders in our programs to further hone their facilitation skills and master our curriculum by co-facilitating one of our summer partner-based programs. Each pair of youth facilitators receives support from an experienced Critical Exposure staff member. This program qualifies as a Marion Barry’s Summer Youth Employment Program (MBYEP) and meets for 25 hours per week over 6 weeks, plus 40 hours of training before the program begins, for a total of 190 hours.
-Summer partner-based programs engage young people who are already participating in a structured summer opportunity through a local organization (often MBSYEP sites). These programs are facilitated by CE’s Summer Youth Facilitators and meet for 4 hours per week over 6 weeks of the summer at each partner site. Youth Facilitators work with a group of 8-15 youth, training them in photography and organizing techniques. These programs meet for 24 program hours.

Students learn how to use the “Gamesalad” software in our game design course. Gamesalad utilizes a visual block coding system which pieces together functions/formulas to make their game. This serves as a great introduction to programming. Students will use music, sound effects and images to give life to their game. Using storyboarding, sprite animation, illustration, level design, and basic programming skills, students create their own amazing adventure.

In our programming course, students will learn Java, one of the most common programming languages. Students learn how to use conditional statements and differentiate between types of variables. They will write and use methods in addition to implementing console input/output.

Our Digital Comic class teaches the importance of storylines, concept art, and design. Starting with pencil and paper sketches, students will later digitize their creations using programs like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. The finished product will be a digitally polished comic strip.

  DC Office of the People's Counsel Academic SupportCivics/Social StudiesCommunity and Family Engagement Civics/Social Studies Mission Statement: (Abridged)

The Office of the People's Counsel is an independent agency of the District of Columbia government.  By law it is the advocate for consumers of natural gas, electric and telephone services in the the District.  Originally established by the United States Congress in 1926, the office was eliminated by that body in a federal executive branch reorganization in 1952.  In 1975 community concern about rapidly rising electric rates resulted in the reestablishment of the Office by Congress in 1975 through the enactment of Public Law 93-614.

 The Office is headed by the People's Counsel, an attorney appointed to a 4 year term by the Mayor with the advice and consent of the DC Council. District law designates the Office as a party to all utility related proceedings before the Public Service Commission.

The Office also represents the interests of District ratepayers before federal regulatory agencies in accordance with DC Law 5-153, the "Utility Regulatory Assessment Clarification Act."  
The Office provides services to District Consumers in three primary areas; 

1) Legal representation of the interests of ratepayers on regulatory matters and services before the Public Service Commission; 

2) Assistance to individual consumers in matters involving disputes with utility billing and services, and; 

3) Consumer Education and Outreach and technical assistance services to consumers seeking to learn more about their utilities.

It is in this third area, Consumer Education and Outreach, that OPC seeks to extend our services to youth by sharing our current "Youth Energy Safety and Energy Education Program" with students in the DC Public Schools.

   OPC's Youth Education Program has developed a successful track record in District based Boys and Girls Clubs and at recreation centers through a summer partnership with the DC Department of Recreation.  To date hundreds of children have benefited from energy safety and energy and environmental conservation education developed to assist them in understanding their role in the sustainability of the District of Columbia.

The program involves a minimum of 2 one hour sessions with each group of students.  We recommend a limit of no more than 25 students in the lower age groups (5-8yrs) per session.

Accommodations can be made for irregularly sized groups, particularly with regard to after-school programs.  

Typically, OPC staff has conducted class sessions for 10 hours per week. We are prepared to expand instruction hours based on the scheduling needs of the available school locations.

OPC provides age appropriate educational materials for each participant.  All materials and supplies will be provided by OPC.

Student Action Student Strength 

Sister Action Sister Strength (SASS) is a youth development curriculum available to partnering middle and high schools within Washington, DC. Trained community advocates serve as instructors that facilitate school-based clubs. The curriculum utilizes a variety of tools such as media analysis, role-play, individual and group projects, collaborative art, facilitated dialogue, and team-building exercises.

Sister Action Sister Strength (SASS) Clubs for teen girls promote the values of informed consent, positive self-image, and healthy self-expression by introducing attitudes and risk-reduction concepts among youth around the issues of sexual violence and relationship abuse. In keeping with best practices, the program aims to accomplish three primary goals for youth: 1) teach them to recognize sexual abuse; (2) give them the skills to practice informed consent and boundary setting; and (3) encourage them to report abuse that they have experienced, are experiencing or may experience in the future. Our SASS Clubs have the additional goals of helping teenage girls strengthen their self esteem and communication skills, and teaching them about healthy relationships, along with sexuality and dating violence. The program also engages the adults in these youths’ lives by utilizing a co-facilitation strategy that incorporates a school based staff member.

Sister Action Sister Strength Clubs can serve as a microcosm for creating a culture of consent. Each group is built on the tenets of safety, belonging, leadership, mutuality, curiosity, respect and depth of learning and relationship. Participants and facilitators alike are empowered to foster group cohesion and empathy by engaging in honest dialogue about lived experiences, fears, goals and by sharing skills and insights that promote healthy relationships with self and others.

  DC SCORES ArtsAthleticsCommunity and Family EngagementHealth and WellnessMentoring/LeadershipSchool Climate and CultureSocial Emotional Athletics DC SCORES creates neighborhood teams that give kids in need the confidence and skills to succeed on the playing field, in the classroom, and in life. Our program has a whole-child, social-emotional focus with measurable impact.
DC SCORES integrates a full-fledged soccer leagues with intensive instruction in the art of spoken word and written poetry and hands-on, child-driven, adult-supported service-learning.  Our programming is 5 days a week for 90 minutes each day. We work with 32 students (16 boys and 16 girls) in an elementary or middle school grades.  Traditionally four teachers from the school day work as soccer and writing coaches with DC SCORES after school. 

We operate girls and boys leagues for elementary and middle school students. Every Thursday and Friday, teams play home and away soccer games.  We bus the team to/from the fields and provide full player kits (jerseys, shorts, socks, shinguards), referees, lined fields, goals, balls, and all other necessary equipment.  These games create an opportunity for parents and schools to come together, for teachers and administrators to get to know parents in a relaxed, relationship-building environment, and for students to participate in a structured soccer league complete with playoffs and season-ending tournaments.

On the two days a week our teams are not practicing soccer or playing in a game, they write and perform original poetry together and design and carry out school- and neighborhood-based service-learning projects together.  Both of those activities involve significant writing and reflecting consonant with national literacy standards. Because our programming is not individual or a la carte, every participant plays soccer with their team, writes/performs original poetry with their team, and does service projects with their team.  This gives kids the chance to explore different aspects of themselves and to build strong relationships with classmates and teachers alike. Our poetry curriculum culminates in the District’s largest youth poetry slam, where every participant gets to perform original works on stage with their team.  Our service-learning curriculum culminates in a poster display, where every team presents their projects, impact, and reflections to thousands of community members.

  District of Columbia Council for Excellence Academic SupportCollege/Career ReadinessCommunity and Family Engagement College/Career Readiness To assist financially challenged and academically qualified students succeed in their chosen professional or academic path.

DCCFE understands that many public school students face daunting financial pressures that can prevent them from completing High School and  obtaining a college degree. Balancing work and study is extremely stressful for students that need to work to make money.  Not having financial support from parents and other environmental factors lead many students to quit college prior to obtaining their degrees.

DCCFE’s mission is to assist in alleviating some of the financial burden on students and their families so they can focus on completing high school and graduating from college. All of our scholarships and other programs are designed with this goal in mind.

  Dreams For Kids DC AthleticsMentoring/LeadershipSocial Emotional Social Emotional MISSION
Dreams For Kids DC provides life-changing activities that empower children with physical and developmental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential.

All too often children with disabilities are isolated and don't have adequate opportunities to partake in physical activities that other children are able to experience daily. We differentiate ourselves from our competitors by the quality and abundance of volunteer support we offer. Each of our clinics ensures a 1:1 ratio of volunteer to participant. 
DFKDC Events
DFKDC events are adaptive sports clinics held once or twice a month for children with disabilities aged 4 – 24. Through our events, those with physical and developmental disabilities are able to come off the sidelines and unite with their peers. A lot of these children have been bullied in schools, and are left out of activities with able-bodied children. The empowerment and self confidence gained through the clinic will carry over from the field to the home, classroom, and the community, allowing them to realize that their disability will not prevent them from fulfilling their dreams. Each child is partnered with a volunteer to learn the essence of teamwork, have a mentor, and also bond over a sense of camaraderie. 

DFKDC Holiday Celebration
Throughout the year, Dreams For Kids DC provides a wide variety of adaptive clinics for children with physical and developmental disabilities— from waterskiing and football to cooking and Prom.  The DFKDC Holiday Celebration is more than a seasonal party; it is our culminating year-end event that gives our participants (the beneficiaries of our free DFKDC clinics) the opportunity to “pay-compassion-forward”. Participants engage in a variety of philanthropic activities at the Holiday Celebration including: wrapping presents for underprivileged children; decorating desserts for homeless shelters; making holiday cards for Veterans, and more. The DFKDC Holiday Celebration is a time for fun and philanthropy, and a reminder that their disabilities will not hold them back from reaching their potential.

  Dumbarton Concerts/ Inner City - Inner Child ArtsCommunity and Family EngagementLiteracy and HumanitiesProfessional Dev & Teacher SupportSocial EmotionalSTEM Arts Inner City – Inner Child’s (ICIC) mission is to improve the academic and social-emotional skills of  preschool students by providing arts-integration programs and books to children; comprehensive professional development to their early childhood educators; and engaging workshops to their families. We pursue our mission through three core programs:
1. Dancing With Books (classroom residencies for children and teachers): Dancing With Books is a classroom residency program that models for teachers innovative ways to teach children literacy, math/science, social-emotional, arts/creativity, and physical development skills. The residency—which consists of arts-focused literacy activities (including music, movement, meaningful gestures, and visual arts) centered on a core group of picture books—provides a high quality learning experience for children while simultaneously providing professional development for teachers. 
2. Naptime U. (professional development workshops for teachers): Naptime U. is a professional development workshop program, based in DC’s Anacostia community, that provides early childhood teachers with quality, affordable continuing education. The majority of the workshops take place during children’s naptime so that teachers can attend—hence the nickname, “Naptime U.” ICIC also provides on-site, full staff professional development days to early childhood programs that serve DC’s low-income communities. 
3. Read With Me (family literacy program): Our Read With Me family literacy workshops help low-income parents become actively involved in their children’s literacy and early learning by modeling for them how to use music, movement, meaningful gestures, and visual arts to create learning experiences at home.

  East Ed Academic SupportProfessional Dev & Teacher Support Academic Support Our Mission...
In support of diversity
In our schools and neighborhoods, educators and community activists have an evolving obligation to ensure that our learning and living environments reflect the rising cultural diversity of our nation. Our lessons and teaching methods must be transformative, not just additive, and our decision making must be inclusive and welcoming of our neighbors and families.
Eastern Educational Resource Collaborative's (East Ed's) mission is to serve as a resource to schools, colleges, families and agencies and support the establishment of equitable, anti-bias, multicultural environments.
Diversity is who we are, now and into the future. Our collective history is replete with injustice to diversity, violence to diversity and oppression of diverse others. Therefore, as we seek to establish a gender-fair, race-aware direction, we must actively work to ensure that the injustices of the past and the resultant laws, habits and traditions that created hierarchies of race, social class, gender, ability and sexual orientation, and of religion, age and ethnicity are recognized and neutralized.
In support of multicultural education
While the dominant direction of inclusion in the past 40 years has been to bring difference into the "big tent," where it is claimed that there is room for all, multiculturalism offers something more intentional. We are known by what we are not. Therefore the more of "what we are not" that is present, the more we know ourselves. In moving more toward quality, multiculturalism has us consider the qualitative reality that diversity experiences. That reality demands that we address such questions as: How safe is a gay person? To what degree is a Black student included in the arts program of a school? Are Asian Americans really welcomed in the sports programs? Welcome, included and safe are the measures of multiculturalism, the qualitative side of diversity.
Multicultural education is the pedagogy, content and assessment of diversity within a school's curriculum-obvious and hidden and in all aspects of school life. It asks the questions: In an increasingly pluralistic society, what knowledge is of most good to learners? By what methods do learners best acquire that knowledge? What measures allow us to determine if that knowledge has been acquired?
In support of equity and justice
"There can be no equity without justice," declared Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Different from equality, which argues that we shall all have equal amounts, equal access and the same number of resources, equity requires that we are provided with what we require to be equal, to achieve, to cross the finish line, to have ownership.
Justice demands that we view the world from the perspective of the least advantaged. Basing our curricula and our programs on the needs of the least advantaged allows us to view the full spectrum of the human condition. It is from this perspective, not from a patronizing, self-promoting perspective, that we derive a true sense of justice.
In support of practical appropriate services, events and tools
East Ed programs, services, bulletins and institutes speak to diversity, multicultural education and justice. We embrace a collaborative model that suggests that the solutions to a community's problems exist within a dialogue between members of that community.
We serve schools, colleges, community agencies and families. Join us!
East Ed offers a wide variety of services to schools, including consulting to administration, teachers, and boards. East Ed offers a Multicultural Seminar series, institutes and conferences, and online services. Randolph Carter

We begin with academic evaluation to pinpoint the need of our students.  We then develop a personalized learning plan and individualized instruction.  We provide Reading & Phonics (fostering strong reading foundation); Writing (mastering written communication); Mathematics (preparing for math challenges); Study Skills (building lifetime of study habits); ADHD Support (help ADHD students excel);

Our target population include:  (a)     Elementary School Students (ages 5-10); Middle School students (ages 11-13); and High School Students (ages 14-18).  (b) Middle school is often the right time for students to work with a reading tutor, as high school and college entrance exams such as the ACT and SAT sit just on the horizon. High school students are given their first introduction into the high expectations and demanding academic environment they'll face once they get to college or enter a career.  c) High school courses require students to be able to extract information and deep meaning from texts, whether the author's symbolism and messaging is stated explicitly or implicitly. Heavy workloads coupled with dense and difficult texts can leave teens struggling to keep up, and a lack of strong reading skills will only make this time more challenging. d) We work with students:  5 hours per day; 7 days per week or as needed by each individual or school.

  Education for Sharing Civics/Social StudiesGlobal EducationSchool Climate and Culture Social Emotional Our mission is to form better citizens from childhood through innovative educational programs based on the power of play. Education for Sharing is an international global citizenship organization that engages students in four unique programs all of which promote civic values and foster collaboration. 

Sports for Sharing: Students participate in physically-engaging games and then reflect through meaningful dialogue centered around the civic values and Sustainable Development Goals. This experiential learning encourages students to take what they have learned and integrate it into their daily lives as change agents in their communities.

Initiatives for Sharing: After developing an awareness of global challenges through the Sustainable Development Goals children implement an initiative that addresses an area for improvement within their school or local community. With the Initiatives for Sharing programming, we equip children with project management skills and support them as they design and implement their own initiatives with social impact.

Science for Sharing: This program is centered around hands-on experience with science, technology, engineering, and math to make the subject matter accessible, relevant, and interesting. Students learn how the STEM fields are applicable to their daily lives and are encouraged to propose solutions concerning environmental and health issues to improve their own and their communities' future.

Art for Sharing: helps students develop social skills and strengthen critical, empathic, and creative participation in society through artistic exploration.Through our theater-based methodology and reflection, teens learn about current societal problems such as achievement gaps, school and domestic violence, sexual education, child abuse, and lack of self-awareness and acceptance. The program encourages teens to fulfill their potential as active citizens who practice the E4S values in their daily lives.

All of our programs are fully bilingual.

ArtsMentoring/LeadershipSchool Climate and CultureSocial Emotional Social Emotional The problem that Eye to Eye seeks to address is that across the country, millions of highly intelligent young people with LD/ADHD are failing in our public schools today, exiting the school system on a path towards failure throughout life. One primary cause of this problem is that most young people with LD/ADHD lack the agency and know‐how to make their learning environments work for them. Eye to Eye establishes mentoring programs across the country (60 programs) to provide young people with LD/ADHD with the skills and characteristics to help them succeed in the classroom and in life: self‐esteem, self‐advocacy, and self‐awareness. Eye to Eye’s program aims to empower middle school students with LD/ADHD to take control over their own educational path. If students with LD/ADHD understand the way they learn and they reject the stigma that often comes with a different learning style, they can find the accommodations they need to succeed in the classroom and achieve greater educational success. Eye to Eye’s program provides its mentees with a role model, who can instill hope to a struggling student. Because the mentor also has an LD/ADHD, he or she can genuinely say, “I know what you are going through and I can help.”; Each year, Eye to Eye’s program is independently evaluated, and the results show that our program is working: as a result of our program, 85% of our mentees feel better about themselves, 73% believed that their mentor helped them learn how to ask for the things they need in order to do well in school, 87% reported being a part of Eye to Eye got me to think about what I am good at,”; and 87% reported that their mentor helped them to think about their future positively.

This is for boys and girls (of any skill level) to run around, burn some energy, and have fun after a long day of school. Not to be confused with our Flag Football League (held on Sundays), our after school programs are midweek sessions of skills, drills, and scrimmages. This is a low-pressure environment, and all are welcome. Boys and girls. Athletes or bookworms. Rookies or Pros. All you'll need are a pair of cleats (sneakers will work), a bottle of water and a positive attitude! Flag Star Football’s enrichment programs provide unique learning opportunities for children to build new skills in athletics, teamwork, and enhancing motor skills.

FRESHFARM FoodPrints, in partnership with DC Public Schools, aims to make positive changes in what children and their families eat and how they engage in learning about nutritious foods and academic content. FRESHFARM FoodPrints partners with schools to provide engaging, standards-based, hands-on learning for elementary school students by integrating a kitchen classroom, school garden, and standards-based lessons through regularly scheduled classes that are essentially  “in-school field trips” (once per month). In FoodPrints classes, students grow, harvest, prepare, and cook nutritious in-season foods. FoodPrints gives classroom teachers and their students new ways to engage with academic content in science, math, language arts, and social studies. Students learn where food comes from, how to grow and prepare tasty nutritious recipes (with an on-site school garden and supporting instruction), how to work cooperatively, and how to make positive changes in what they eat. Teachers and parent volunteers are engaged in the classes, and simple nutritious recipes are sent home after each class.

At each partner school, FRESHFARM FoodPrints works with administrators and teachers to:
- Customize a program based on unique elements of your school’s curriculum and student population
- Ensure that FoodPrints lessons align with Common Core, Next Generation Science, and Health standards
- Bring opportunities for environmental literacy education to your school

  Georgetown University - Center for Multicultural Equity & Access: Institute for College Preparation (ICP) Academic SupportCollege/Career ReadinessCommunity and Family EngagementSocial EmotionalSTEM Academic Support The Center for Multicultural Equity & Access (CMEA) enhances the education of students historically denied access to Georgetown University because of their race or ethnicity. To that end, we provide mentoring, multicultural programming, diversity education, and academic support; we work to create a community committed to education of the whole person and care for others; and we challenge the University to fulfill its commitment to justice for the common good. The Institute for College Preparation provides an innovative, interdisciplinary curriculum that
links science with English, math, a foreign language and the human condition. Students are
challenged to explore science in a way that differs from the traditional high school approach.
At each grade level, students have a co-curricular learning experience that animates real-life
applications of science. For example, rising ninth grade students study anatomy and physiology
in conjunction with lessons in visual arts, music, acting, and dance, learn the scientific
terminology in Spanish and English, and travel to a professional stage production that combines
all these elements. The travel, in turn, becomes preparation for the study abroad trip the
following summer. This method of instruction demonstrates creatively how curricula are
interrelated and have application to daily life and environments. In essence, students experience
a process of how to be inquisitive in their communities, schools and larger world.

Our target audience are students who attend the following schools: Kelly Miller, Sousa, and Chavez.

Students typically attend Saturday Academy 8-10 Saturdays each semester from 9a.m.-2p.m.

tutoring and mentoring to support youth in DC’s immigrant communities to bridge the language gap as much as possible.

Through one-on-one tutoring and in-class support, Georgetown DC Reads aims to bring every child’s reading and writing skills up to grade level, as well as nurture the enthusiasm, perseverance and
motivation needed for children to succeed in school. Georgetown tutors create engaging Common Core Standards-based lessons tailored to children’s interests and needs, work with children to set and track progress towards goals, and help children explore educational resources in DC, including libraries and museums.

The STEM Afterschool program provides hands-on, project-based STEM activities to elementary school students. STEM Afterschool tutors develop group projects to learn about the scientific method and explore STEM concepts.

The After School Kids (ASK) Program serves at-potential teens in the DC metropolitan area, who are looking to make positive strides in their lives and to be catalysts for change in their community. Our youth are adversely impacted by the school-to-prison pipeline, and may experiencing multiple obstacles to obtaining their high school diploma, careers, and postsecondary education. It is not uncommon for our youth to experience chronic trauma exposure, involvement in the court system, and to be over-aged and under-credited. Despite their daily obstacles, our youth envision a brighter future through education, social action, and wellness. ASK provides programming and support to realize their vision. Youth are referred by DC city agencies, and the tutoring and mentoring support involve engaging the youth's schools and teachers.

Jumpstart is a national early education organization and works with underserved preschool children in schools and community centers. Through an evidence-based curriculum, Jumpstart strives to develop language and literacy skills that youth need to be ready for school, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap.

CSJ’s other programs and student organizations provide math and science tutoring and homework help, mentoring activities, financial literacy workshops, college application advising, and other
tutoring and mentoring activities.

  Georgetown University Law Center - Street Law Civics/Social StudiesGlobal EducationMentoring/Leadership Civics/Social Studies The broad goals of the Street Law program are to:
•    educate students in the practical applications of legal concepts, principles and policies; 
•    provide students with an opportunity to develop, apply, and refine academic, cognitive, expressive, analytical and civic skills, and to set and pursue their own goals in this direction;
•    develop in students an appreciation for their role and responsibilities in the community and appreciation for diversity in the community;
•    sensitize students to sources, contexts, issues in and resolutions of community legal problems, particularly as those problems exist for urban youth;
•    in the context of the classroom, to treat others with dignity and respect and in ways that value their diversity, and to apply principles of sound education and classroom management in effective, fair and just ways; and
•    develop an appreciation for the principles of and the capacity to engage in democratic education and discourse-based communities.
     In the Street Law Program, a partnership begun in 1972 between DCPS and Georgetown University Law Center, law students teach courses in practical law and fundamental rights to DC public high school students.  Through the Street Law methodology of highly participatory, interactive, and engaging activity-based and experiential instruction, high school students develop essential academic, cognitive, expressive and civic skills. 
     The fall semester begins with an introduction to law and legal reasoning and negotiations, then examines the criminal justice system. It continues with the study of human rights globally and in DC. The semester concludes with a capstone human rights mock trial event at Georgetown Law Center in collaboration with the DC Human Rights Commission.
     The spring semester features the centerpiece of Street Law, the annual Mock Trial Tournament. High school students play the roles of lawyers and witnesses in a hypothetical case they present in two rounds at the DC Superior Court. Approximately 300 students on 30 teams from 15 classes in 12 high schools participate. In addition to learning communications and preparation skills, trial procedures, and teamwork, high school students practice the spectrum of cognitive and expressive skills as they learn a complex fact pattern, analyze legal issues, and synthesize the many components into a unified presentation.

  Georgetown University School of Foreign Service Professional Dev & Teacher SupportTutoring Professional Dev & Teacher Support The Walsh School of Foreign Service was  created nearly a century ago with a bold mission to foster peace and stability through educating students and practitioners from a global perspective. What makes SFS unique is our commitment to service. We see service not as a particular career path, but as an approach to solving problems that is just as relevant in the private sector as the public sector. What makes SFS unique is our extraordinary pairing of first-rate scholars and practitioners. We push our students to constantly challenge big ideas with experience of practice from all over the world. What makes SFS unique is the unequalled range and depth of our understanding of countries, regions and cultures. We have over 20 different centers and programs that cover all regions of the world and key cross-cutting global issues.

  Georgetown University School of Medicine - Community-Based Learning (CBL) College/Career ReadinessMentoring/LeadershipSTEM STEM      Guided by the Jesuit tradition of Cura Personalis, care of the whole person, Georgetown University School of Medicine will educate a diverse student body, in an integrated way, to become knowledgeable, ethical, skillful, and compassionate physicians and biomedical scientists who are dedicated to the care of others and health needs of our society.  

     A required course for every first-year medical student at Georgetown's School of Medicine is Community-Based Learning (CBL).  CBL is a type of “living lab.”  The course provides opportunities for gaining insight about the context of where people live, work, play and worship--directly from community leaders and participants.   First-year medical students share consumer health information for helping community participants and leaders to lead healthier lives.  For elementary students in grades 4-6, medical students present the Mini Med School for Kids Curriculum, which introduces children to the world of medicine through hands-on science activities.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quickbase often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quickbase finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quickbase needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
