GET INVOLVED

Your contribution goes directly towards a youth’s dream package which may include: lessons, classes, a museum membership, or even meeting a role model they admire. From A to Z, we help them bring their dreams to life.

IMPACT

We empower youth who are under resourced to believe in themselves, their dreams and their futures.

“It was a life changing experience and make me realize I am not alone in the world.” Olivia, a now 21-year-old dreamer alumni shared.  Olivia received her dream experience in 2017 at the age of 16.  At that time, Olivia had already endured neglect, sexual violence and the traumatic loss of two close loved ones.

We recently sat down with Olivia as part of the Believe in Dreams (BID) longitudinal study where she shared that he BID experience helped her find self-worth and not follow her peers into risk taking behaviors.  Olivia’s dream packaged included a day shadowing a train conductor and she recalls it as “the best day of my life.”  Today, over 5 years later, her dream is still to be a train conductor and she continues to work towards this goal.

When  you give today, you are ensuring that resilient youth in our community, like Olivia, will be believed in and empowered to fulfill their dreams for a brighter future.
