DGIN recently funded these projects:

  • Chess Set- At the request of students, DSA purchased a new plastic, outdoor chess set to replace an old and dearly loved student-created chess set. Students play before school, during lunch, and after school, honing their chess game individually and collaboratively.

  • G.E.N.T.S. Youth Leadership and Mentoring- G.E.N.T.S. is a male youth initiative that focuses on character development, service, and career readiness. This year they hosted a community business leader who spoke about goal setting, completed several sessions on anti-bullying efforts,
    personal hygiene and conflict resolution. The community service projects included trash pickups and a canned food drive that raised over 1,000 units that were donated to Urban Ministries of Durham.
