We work with several outstanding partners to care and advocate for Eckington. Please consider supporting our partner organizations.
Eckington Parks & Arts
In 2019, the Eckington Civic Association helped launch a partner organization to activate and beautify Eckington’s public spaces. Eckington Parks & Arts is a separate membership organization that relies on donations and volunteer time to clean the dog park at Tanner Park, organize community clean-ups on the first and third Saturday of every month, and hold events that bring all of us together.
Langley elementary PTO
Langley Elementary is Eckington’s public elementary school. The Langley Elementary PTO is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization of parents, teachers, and community members dedicated to support the educational experience at Langley Elementary and to make every Langley child’s potential a reality.
McKinley Tech PTO
McKinley Technology Middle and High Schools are located in the center of Eckington. McKinley Tech Middle School is Eckington’s public middle school, and McKinley Tech High School is a STEM-focused public application high school–so students from all over DC attend. The McKinley Tech PTO supports both the middle and high schools.
