Dream Academy: 

·         Dream Academy: 9th-12th grade - a 25 week college-prep training program for students centering on building resiliency in high-risk youth that will engender them to pursue higher education.  The program promotes the development of the skills sets germane to successful matriculation through an institution of higher learning while dispelling the myths this population associates with college enrollment and completion; program operates once a week.

DFAD will empower each student with helpful tools in meeting their dreams and life goals.  We will attend seminars, field trips, personal and professional training development and other training's to help promote successful and positive young women and men in our community.

Purpose: To provide a program to youth that proposes and supports the initiative of continuing education after high school. This program campaigns self-empowerment by working closely with the students, aggressively addressing college/trade school planning and selection as well as assisting youth with a plan that is tailored to fit their individual needs. The mission is to build relationships with high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and secure a plan for the graduating seniors.
