Friendship Public Charter Schools

The mission of Friendship Public Charter Schools is to provide a world-class education that motivates students to achieve high academic standards, enjoy learning and develop as ethical, literate, well-rounded and self-sufficient citizens who contribute actively to their communities. We believe in empowering our students through education and a range of developmental opportunities that propel them to complete college and become productive contributors to the world. A significant proportion of Friendship students reside in communities that are food deserts. With access to healthy food and the development of healthy habits, our students are able to accomplish what we envision for them. In a typical week, a service member at Friendship Public Charter School might lead a garden work day, work with community partners Washington Youth Garden and City Blossoms, or support a special event like Fall Harvest day.

FoodCorps DC Metro members join a close-knit cohort serving BIMPOC communities in our nation’s capital. In addition to free museums, a thriving urban agriculture network, and a backyard that includes Rock Creek Park, DC Metro service members have access to DC’s metro and bus system and bike-friendly streets to ease the daily commute. Come to support DC’s diverse student population as they build stronger relationships with food, stay for the opportunity to work with amazing DC leaders and eat some of the best pupusas, Ethiopian food, and half smokes you’ll ever try.

Preferred Qualifications

  • A creative individual who is happy to reach out to resources across the organization to help make this the best program possible
  • Someone who is great with helping us develop routines in order to ensure the program thrives in coming years
  • Someone who has knowledge of great strategies for instructional integration
