KIPP DC benefits greatly from the support of exceptional corporate and community partners who provide career development opportunities for our students and alumni, in-kind donations of products and skilled volunteer efforts, financial support, programming, and high-impact or quality afterschool enrichment programs.
Our Partnerships in Action
In 2011, Accenture and KIPP DC designed Future Focus, a career skills and internship placement program which has since expanded nationwide to additional KIPP regions. Each year, KIPP DC students and alumni are selected as Accenture interns and a number are sponsored by Accenture to work at local non-profits. To further their impact, representatives from Accenture serve on KIPP DC’s Board of Trustees, Ambassador Board, and volunteer in our classrooms.
Verizon is a valued partner of KIPP DC. As a generous supporter of our science, technology, engineering, and math programs at KIPP DC College Preparatory, they share our vision for a highly-educated and diverse workforce. Globally, Verizon has committed more than $200 million for technology and educational resources.
KIPP DC is grateful to call PGIM our newest partner. Together we will provide high school students with opportunities to build their networks, learn how to navigate the workforce, and secure internships as they plan their career and post high school journey.
