First Year Partner Organizations

The following is a list of our partner organizations in the first year of their partnership. Fair Chance seeks dynamic, youth-focused organizations who have innovative programs and inspiring leaders. We are delighted to be working alongside the following partners:

Chase Your Dreams Academy - is a grassroots, community-based nonprofit that provides year-round programs and activities to fortify, expose, and educate youth in high-need areas. They engage youth in year-round programs and activities to empower, strengthen, and improve the knowledge, attitudes, practices, and performances of all who participate.

Food for Life - is a Christian social enterprise that provides culinary arts and work readiness training to older DC youth (ages 18-24). Our students receive the opportunity, skills training, and support they need to take their best next step.

Inner City Inner Child - works with early childhood education programs that serve DC's low-income communities using a three-pronged approach that includes: (1) innovative classroom residencies and book donations for underserved preschool children; (2) professional development workshops for teachers; and (3) family literacy workshops for parents to support their children's continued learning at home. All of our programs work to create an environment that supports school readiness for the neediest children in our nation's capital.
