Students at DCPS Title I schools rarely experience the enriching, out-of-classroom learning enjoyed by their more affluent peers. LILI believes this injustice contributes greatly to the disparate outcomes experienced by students of different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds. So LILI ignites student potential through field trips to DCís historical, cultural, and natural resources. Students investigate the effects of plastic pollution along the Anacostia River, get inspired while exploring Frederick Douglassís former home, and analyze the challenges of the Great Migration while contemplating the paintings of Jacob Lawrence. LILI provides materials, arranges transportation, and facilitates instruction, including both in the classroom and in the field. A professional development program builds teachers' capacity to lead experience-driven lessons in school as well. History, science, art, and culture come alive for over 2,100 children each year Ė and generate a priceless love of learning.
