DRC is an educational alternative with the flexibility to meet any child's educational needs. DRC provides resources and materials for hands-on projects, as well as a schedule of classes and activities for their members to choose from.

They facilitate classes, share their talents, skills, and ideas and listen carefully to each student member. Volunteers are matched with DRC students who share their interests and talents.
