Workforce Lunches

IDEA's workforce lunch program brings diverse individuals and organizations to our cafeteria to share perspectives about different professions and post-secondary opportunities. Past workforce lunch participants have included US Postal Service workers, cosmetologists, emergency medical technicians, graphic designers, nonprofit youth-service organizations, and universities.

We are actively seeking community members, companies, small businesses, and other institutions to join us for workforce lunch once a month. 

There are three lunch periods at IDEA, lasting from noon to 2pm. Workforce Friday guests are asked to be available to scholars during the entire lunch window. 

We welcome your participation on any of these days. Please contact Principal Nicole McCrae at or 202-399-4750 to learn more or reserve your table!
