KIPP DFW is successful because of the overwhelming support of the Dallas-Fort Worth community. We would like to recognize our partners that continuously help our KIPPsters thrive in school, college and beyond: After School All Stars, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Dallas Social Venture Partners, Hunton & Williams, imc2, Junior Achievement, North Texas Food Bank, Southern Methodist University, Advanced-Online, and Texas Women’s University G-Force.


Tuesday Tutoring

Each Tuesday, KIPP Through College hosts tutoring from 4:30-6:30 at KIPP Truth Academy for alumni who return to receive academic assistance. We are in immediate need of volunteers who can tutor in high school academic subjects, especially math and science. If you are interested in volunteering to work with KIPP DFW alumni, please contact Lydia Herschap using the contact information below.

College Mentor

Support our rising seniors by helping them navigate their college admissions and scholarship applications. You will meet with your KIPPster regularly to discuss college exploration, resume development, essay writing, and interviewing skills. 

Time Commitment: College mentors meet once a month for 1-2 hours with their KIPPsters. Mentors are asked to commit either an entire semester or a full year.


Career Fair 

Volunteer to participate at one of our Career Fairs and have an opportunity to inspire the next generation of doctors, teachers, and entrepreneurs. We invite you to share the importance of a college education and advise our KIPPsters on what they can do in high school and college to be successful in your career field. 

Time Commitment: Each Career Mentoring Night lasts approximately 2 hours. You are welcome to volunteer one fair only, or for more than one fair.


Job Shadowing

Job shadowing offers our KIPPsters the unique opportunity to go beyond their communities to explore “a day in the life” of various careers. We hope to provide a diverse range of opportunities for our students and welcome representatives from all industries. 

Time Commitment: Allow a KIPPster to shadow you for a day or half-day during the summer (June-August).



Office/Clerical Help

We can always use a helping hand to assist with the daily operations in our busy school and regional support offices with filing and other administrative duties. 

Time Commitment: Flexible
