DCYOP Parent Group
Since the very beginning of the DC Youth Orchestra Program, parents have been a vital and valuable part of the organization. The Parent Group of the DCYOP works to build community, foster communication, and support the DCYOP.
All parents and guardians of DCYOP students at all levels are members of the Parent Group. The Parent Group is led by a Steering Committee made up of parents/guardians of students at various levels in DCYOP.
