Get Involved

CDI is a non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of philanthropic individuals and organizations to bring its exceptional programming to under-served children throughout the Los Angeles area. By contributing to CDI through a tax-deductible donation by volunteering your time or services, or even by shopping with Amazon or Capital One, you will help extend our reach to more deserving children in the community.

Volunteering Opportunities


We are so grateful to our many volunteers for their valuable contribution to our program.  Volunteering affords parents an opportunity to experience what their children are learning and helps to galvanize the school culture. Volunteering allows CDI supporters a hands-on, up close look at the work we do in the community.
