In 1998–1999, the Children and Youth Investment Partnership, Washington, increased the scale, scope, and effectiveness of non-school-hour services for youth and children living in Washington.
The Children and Youth Investment Partnership is a coalition of public and private-sector representatives of the city's youth, parents, District of Columbia and federal agencies, public schools, civic groups, service providers, funders, colleges and universities, and community leaders. Its mission is to improve the quality of life for children in Washington.
The Research Forum at the National Center for Children in Poverty has issued a report on the partnership.
Its parent organization, D.C. Agenda Support Corporation, which was the grant recipient, was a city-sponsored organization that fosters consensus among public and private interests about strategies to overcome problems facing the District. It ceased operations in 2004. Information on children in the District of Columbia is now available online.
