It takes wisdom, compassion, courage, self-awarness, and self-discipline to be an effective leader. Learn more about our approach — servant leadership with a focus on the common good.
Ultimately, if we are to build a strong democracy and thriving, sustainable and equitable communities, we need a shared civic faith.

Our Programs and Projects
The nonprofit Civic Leadership Project provides a practical holistic framework for a city, state or rural community to create a civic culture that can strengthen its civic capacity — its ability to work together to solve collective problems — as well as create a more robust nonprofit sector with the giving, volunteering and sense of community responsibility needed to successfully address the educational, social, economic and environmental challenges it faces.
DC Tutoring & Mentoring Initiative
With 50+ partner organizations around the city, the DC Tutoring & Mentoring Initiative is working to create a city-wide public campaign to close the gap between the 60,000+ students who need academic and non-academic support and the capacity of our partners and schools to meet their needs.
Bodhisattva Saturday Mornings
A Bodhisattva is someone dedicated to improving themselves to help make a better world. Do you think of yourself as a practical idealist? Join us Saturday mornings at the Lincoln Memorial for solitary walking/jogging, walking dialogue with a partner, and meditation/prayer. Change yourself and change the world!
Civic Leadership Fellows/Internships
Do you want to make a difference in the world? This is your chance! We welcome college students to apply for our Civic Leadership Fellows program. You’ll help make a practical difference at DCTMI, develop community organizing and leadership skills, participate in stimulating discussions, and meet cool people!
Form 990 Online
Form 990 Online is a web-based system that permits nonprofit organizations and their preparers to create their IRS Form 990s online and either electronically file their return with the IRS or print it and mail it in. The system guides the user through the sections of the form that she needs to complete, verifies the math, and imports basic information from previous returns. In keeping with our nonprofit mission, we keep the system completely free for organizations with less than $100,000 in gross receipts and we have a sliding scale for larger organizations.
