To showcase innovative work in public education, CityBridge Education hosts regular events for D.C.’s philanthropic, business, and civic leaders. These learning opportunities include school tours, speaker series, book discussions, and content presentations.

School Tours


In partnership with Charter Board Partners, FOCUS, and NewSchools Venture Fund, CityBridge Education offers the First Fridays school tours to teach members of the D.C. community about the city’s charter schools. On the first Friday morning of most months during the school year, interested funders, business folks, elected officials, and community leaders are invited to visit a high-performing or high-potential D.C. charter school.

Open exclusively to the funding community, EduTours offer a deep dive into specific education topics through the lens of a DCPS or D.C. public charter school. Designed to highlight local proof points, EduTours couple a presentation of research on the designated topic with a school visit that includes conversation with school leadership, classroom observations, and insights from experts in the field.
