Julian’s testimonial

Julian Peters, with the nonprofit DC Urban Green in Ward 7,  was a participant in OPGS’s 2015  8 week grant writing course taught by Magi Group LLC in partnership with OPGS. Since participating in this course he has become a successful grant writer.   In the later part of 2015 as a result of his participation in the program,   Urban Green won two grants for an automotive training school in the district; the grants totaled $150,000, one for $100,000 and another for $50,000 from the Volkswagen and Toyota foundations respectively.  He said without participating in this course it would not have happened and is  grateful for these types of programs provided by OPGS.
