Columbia & Barnard Students

Experience the life-changing impact that comes from helping New York City high school students get to, through, and beyond college. 

Being a volunteer at DDC is a rewarding experience where your skills are used to help college-bound students achieve their aspirations. In the process, you’ll step beyond Columbia’s campus to connect with and learn from the unique perspectives and experiences of the surrounding community. Make DDC part of your Columbia Journey!

If you are interested in making a difference in a young person’s life, creating community-wide change, and building life-long relationships—DDC is the place. As little as 2 hours a week makes a difference in our students’ lives and in yours!
