City Kids Wilderness Project provides transformative experiences for 130 under-resourced DC youth by building resiliency, broadening horizons, and ensuring skills for success. City Kids Wilderness Project is a nonprofit organization founded in 1996 on the belief that providing enriching life experiences for under-served DC youth can enhance their lives, the lives of their families, and the greater community.
City Kids will serve over 130 youth in 2014, and in the past four years, over 95% of our high school youth have graduated. In comparison, DC has a less than 59% graduation rate. City Kids was selected for a highly competitive capacity building partnership with Fair Chance in 2013 and 2014, and was also selected as one of the best small charities in the Greater Washington Area by the Catalogue for Philanthropy in 2013-2014.
