Welcome to Daniel A. Payne Community Development Corporation
What We Do
We address needs in education and literacy, promote social and economic justice, and support economic development. We are building bridges and hope, while supporting families, and serving community. Our programs benefit people in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, especially those not well-served.
GIRLS WHO CODE PROGRAMS
The Girls Who Code Program began at Metropolitan AME Church in 2017. The Program attendees are girls in grades 3 through high school. The girls receive lessons in HTML, CSS, Java Script, and Scratch. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Program continued virtually on Zoom. The Programs are conducted in 8-week during the Spring and Fall.
The girls learn to build games, animations, and apps. The girls also learn about women who made major contributions in STEM fields as well.
The programs over past two years:
9/11/2021 - 11/13/2021
April 9 - May 28, 2022
9/24/2022 - 11/26/2022
In late 2018, the DAPCDC's National Society of Black Engineers, Jr. chapter was reactivated. All students in the Girls Who Code Programs are provided free memberships by the DAPCDC.
