About Us

Our Mission: Dreams for Kids replaces charity with opportunity for at-risk youth through service, leadership and social activities and inspires them to fearlessly pursue their dreams and compassionately change the world.

Our Vision: To unite children of disability, race, religion, and socio-economic background and inspire them to realize their full potential and serve as active members of their communities and citizens of the world.

Our Approach: At the core of our programming is the empowerment of youth who live in poverty and those with disabilities. The heart of the approach is reminding each young person they have something to give, and then giving them opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others.

Our Purpose: To break down the barriers of segregation, embrace the abilities and potential of an isolated population, and empower them by their paying it forward in such a way which changes their communities and transforms their lives.


How Do We Do It?

Through a social enterprise based program, Dream Leaders, we remind youth that every person has something to give, that they are the solution; not the problem, and that even the most at-risk young person deserves a hand-up, not a handout. Our Dream Leaders create social impact projects in their own community and in distant villages around the world. They learn they have the ability to change the world and the means to do it. Our youth become the change we all wish to see in the world.
