Spotlight on Nonprofits
Every summer, kids from Washington D.C.’s most vulnerable communities come out to Jackson for an experiential program that teaches them valuable skills and provides inspiration and encouragement to follow their dreams. Students join the program in sixth grade and participate in school year programs in D.C. as well as Jackson-based summer programs. Students remain in the program through high school graduation, and this long-term engagement helps them succeed in adulthood. Older youth become peer leaders for younger ones and participate in job training and college preparation programming.
