Call for Partners

Promise Partnerships

DCPNI accomplishes its work through partnerships with high quality program and service providers that yield innovative social solutions through reciprocal relationships, shared vision, collective action and joint accountability. We connect a diverse set of organizations with each other to optimize the provision of supports and resources that deliver innovative solutions to identified developmental needs in the community. We support our partners to build capacity in the areas of community engagement, sustainability and program evaluation. Most importantly, we encourage our partners to “leave the learning” in the community, to strengthen community leaders to carry on with the work the partners have started.

Opportunity for Partnership

DCPNI will offer a comprehensive youth development program that provides academic support, art & character enrichment, fitness/nutrition, and college & career readiness support services to students during the 2015-2016 school year and the summer of 2016.

DCPNI is seeking partners to help provide after-school and summer programming (commonly referred to as Out-of-School Time, or OST, programming) for youth and young adults in the community.
