KIPP DC benefits from exceptional corporate and community partners who help us build a foundation for student success in school, and improve life outcomes for the next generation of Washingtonians. Together, we can ensure that our students and alumni have access to the resources, experiences, networks, and opportunities of a world-class education.
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.
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.
