Dream Academy

A Classroom Without Walls

The Dream Academy provides enrichment educational support for youth in K-8th grade. A robust After-School Program servicing 200 plus students, this free program provides a safe and constructive place for youth every weekday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the school year.

 

Students receive a wide range of resources such as weekly education workshops, STEM projects, field trips and speakers. Students are offered a wide range of opportunities including homework help, tutoring and mentorship, and activities such as painting, sports, and interaction with collegiate athletes, free haircuts and monthly dental screenings.

 

We bridge their desire for excellence, leadership and sports to educate youth on other essential core value systems. We translate the skills that are required to win in sports into skills that are required to win at life. This allows for the development of a blueprint for success, in language young athletes understand.

 

Impact: Lack of physical and social opportunities in schools and communities puts children at risk for under-performance and future violence or criminal behaviors. The Dream Academy provides activities for youth every weekday to both provide youth with a safe and constructive space and to equip them with social and emotional life skills, improving academic performance and impacting their futures.
