My experience volunteering with KIPP has been more challenging and rewarding than any I've had. The teachers and administration at KIPP have never ceased to amaze me with their dedication to the school and students, maintaining strong bonds with students and families long after "promotion" from 8th grade. KIPP's "No Shortcuts, No Excuses" mantra is lived 100% on a daily basis by everyone at the school -- from the Principal to the students to the janitors mopping the floor. The opportunity to work with eager and ambitious 5th and 6th grade students every other Saturday morning allowed me to get in touch with a too-often overlooked part of DC. The look of pride on my students' faces when they harvested their first batch of lettuce from our community garden, or scored the winning run in a kickball rubber match, is something that will stay with me for ever!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the smiling faces and heartfelt speeches at the 8th grade "promotion" ceremony each year.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

110% dedicated to the mission, action, and results of the school.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of thousands more students in one of the nation's worst school systems, boosting our children beyond the cycle of poverty, forever bridging the achievement gap, and having an invaluable impact on the future of our nation.
