Community Partners

Over the past 20 years, CDI has built a wide range of community partnerships that give us the capacity to offer unparalleled opportunities to our students. These businesses, nonprofit organizations, colleges and universities provide paid internships, career exploration opportunities, legal guidance, medical referrals, specialized courses, and college classes to our motivated students and alumni. Our community partners expose students to a world beyond their own communities—sparking curiosity and inspiring futures.
