Provisional Projects

Each year we train a group of first-year members, “Provisionals,” to be effective volunteers and leaders in the community. Provisional members complete a comprehensive training course that allows them to experience needs, first-hand, within the Dallas community. This year each Provisional will participate in one of twelve 20-hour community service projects. The projects span our six Issue Areas: Arts and Culture, Poverty Intervention, Family Preservation, Violence Intervention, Health, and Education.




The 2020-2021 Provisional Project Application Process is now closed.

Our grant application cycle for our Community Grants, Provisional Projects and Transfer Projects typically opens in March of each year. We offer a Grants Workshop in late February or early March each year.
