KIPP Dallas-Fort Worth (KIPP DFW) is proud to announce the formation of The KIPP Young Professionals (KYP), a group of like-minded 20-and-30 somethings committed to raising awareness about the current state of education in southern Dallas and to sharing their time, treasure and talents advancing the mission of KIPP DFW.

The mission of KIPP DFW is to provide children in underserved communities with a free, rigorous, high quality education that offers the knowledge, skills and character traits necessary to thrive in school, college and the competitive world beyond. The role of KIPP Young Professionals (KYP) is to be involved in opening new schools, spreading the word about KIPP DFW, and interacting with our scholars. 

The KYP Experience

As KYP continues to establish its leadership, so too will opportunities for involvement evolve. We are actively engaged in a 'friend-raising' campaign meaning we want YOUR voice. We hope you will join us in not only volunteering at our campuses, but telling your friends, family and circles of influence about KIPP DFW. We offer the following ways to engage and learn about the mission of KIPP DFW:

  • Volunteer opportunities on Campus- both individual and KYP-led
  • Cocktails & Conversation Speaker Series
  • Annual Are You Smarter Than a KIPPster? Event - the annual fundraising event features an education-based trivia game where KIPP DFW middle school students compete head-to-head with local and regional “celebrities". All proceeds go to support KIPP DFW’s expansion campaign to grow to 10 campuses serving 5,000 southern Dallas students by 2020.
