About Us


Founded in 2019, CityWorks DC is a leading collaborator in the DC education-to-employment ecosystem. Our mission is to dramatically improve the early career outcomes of DC youth and young adults of color by creating innovative programs and by mobilizing employers, educators, and city leaders to create a local, diverse talent pipeline. Our work is to ensure that young people acquire industry-valued credentials; paid, relevant work experience; and social capital. Our vision is that all DC youth and young adults of color secure meaningful work that allows them to thrive.

We launch innovative programs that work directly with young people to help them build family-sustaining careers, create personal wealth, and drive economic growth.

We lead citywide initiatives designed to create lasting change in our education and training systems for DC youth.
