DDC was established through the efforts of Barnard and Columbia undergraduates. Today, we still rely on the civic commitment and volunteerism of students across Barnard and Columbia University to help us fulfill our mission. 

Once we receive your application, we will contact you to initiate Protection of Minors [link] training and a background check, in accordance with the policies of Columbia University.  

Thank you for your interest—DDC could not so deeply impact the lives of our young people without you!
