DREAM Alive (DA) helps break the cycle of poverty by mentoring at-risk youth from 7th grade through 12th grade, helping our youth find career paths.
While statistics don’t tell the whole story, we believe these statistics describe the outcomes that DREAM Alive is in pursuit of. Through our 6-year continuum of programming, youth are graduating from high school with career readiness. Sometimes real life stories tell more of a story than statistics could ever communicate. Please feel free to read and watch some of the stories from our scholars and graduates below.
