WAF About: Intro

We are architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects, teachers, and students working to improve access to all the benefits and opportunity that design offers. Through programs in and out of school, scholarships, design services for community non-profits, and design competition that supports the Capital Area Food Bank, WAF uses its resources wisely to offer help and make change where it is needed most. 

Discover our many online learning resources for kids, families, and teachers at home during the COVID-19 crisis. 

WAF programs are supported by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities
