Learning Life Partners with CPDC
Learning Life is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Community Preservation and Development Corporation (CPDC) to provide free, innovative, world learning activities to families at CPDC properties and in the surrounding community.
The CPDC is “a leading not-for-profit real estate developer dedicated to providing safe, high-quality affordable housing to low and moderate-income individuals and families.” The CPDC owns and operates more than two dozen apartment buildings in Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland that provide housing and activities for their residents. Through the partnership, the CPDC is providing Learning Life with community center space and materials to carry out our “Fundays” to help open the world to lower-income families. Learning Life started working with the CPDC informally and periodically in 2018, but formalized this relationship on Thursday, February 14 with a plan for regular programming.
In 2019, Learning Life’s Fundays will occur twice monthly on Sunday afternoons from February to November, and will be the primary vehicle through which participating families in DC and abroad move through the projects of our Family Diplomacy Initiative (FDI). FDI is Learning Life’s flagship program through which lower-income American families engage in projects with lower-income families in other nations to democratize diplomacy and nurture more caring, capable global citizens. The Fundays are free to eligible families, and engage them in a combination of mind and body challenges to develop their physical fitness and world knowledge. For more about our Fundays, click here.
