Our 4-Stage Program to Transform Boys and Young Men
Dream Big! fills the opportunity gap by connecting boys and young men with low to no-cost learning and transformative experiences that cultivate college and career readiness skills, creativity, build social and emotional skills and boost academic achievement.
O U R A P P R O A C H
We promote a college-bound and career identity through a pipeline program, starting at the age of 3 until the age of 24.
We create a counter space that empowers DREAAMers for life success through a college & career readiness program focused on literacy, STEM, creativity, and solution-thinking.
We value a trauma-informed approach. With this approach, the staff and volunteers are proactive, encouraging behaviors that promote learning.
We encourage movement, respect, work ethic, leadership, recognition of others, community, and positive brotherhood.
We offer programming at three levels to best serve our DREAAMers. Each program has a college-bound and career identity focus. Prevention and early intervention are key to developing social and emotional health. Each program offers transformative experiences, leadership training, mentoring, and forming positive relationships with caring adults.
