Some of our outreach key programs include:

Keys to Success/Las Llaves del Éxito ~ A highly successful program delivering important higher education access information to the community; a partnership with Dallas ISD, Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, area universities and non-profit organizations. Students, enrolled in 6th - 12 grade, and their parents attend this event.

African American Male Academic Bowl ~ This is an annual scholar's tournament for African American males in grades 4th-8th from around DFW Metroplex.  This is a single elimination tournament with teams competing against each other answering questions amongst various categories.  The day also includes workshop sessions reflecting on college readiness, financial literacy and much more.

Día de la Familia ~ A free event that celebrates DCCCD's Annual Family Day and incorporates food, entertainment and educational information sessions for the whole family. This event was initiated over 15 years ago.

Service Learning ~ A program offered at all seven colleges that impacts the community by allowing students an opportunity to learn by serving in a variety of settings.

Major Mania ~ A partnership with Dallas ISD's Career Education and Workforce Partnerships to organize a summer event for recent Dallas ISD graduates who may not have acted on college plans.

"Keepin' It Real" Youth Empowerment Summit ~ A partnership with Teen Graffiti Magazine to provide a one-day program at a DCCCD college along with interactive workshops.

Community College Aerospace Scholars (CAS) ~ CAS is a program funded by the State of Texas and administered by NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC). Each community college district across Texas nominates a group of 10 to 20 students interested in the areas of computer science, engineering, mathematics, and science to travel together to NASA-JSC for a three-day experience providing hands-on projects. DCCCD has a unique partnership to host a DCCCD-only program. This year 24 students participated in this program.
