DREAM

DREAM combines best practices from both mentoring and community development programs to create a unique experience for the college students and the children. During weekly meetings at the colleges, the students work as a team to provide mentoring activities to children in both individual and group settings. Our volunteer mentors also work with parents from the developments to ensure that their local DREAM program is inclusive, safe, and inspiring. The long-term relationships that develop between the children and mentors are the foundation of our programs and provide a means for children to engage in positive risk-taking, see new perspectives and take advantage of community resources.
