KIDS CAN'T BE WHAT THEY CAN'T SEE


LETTER TO OUR SUPPORTERS Dear Supporter: Here at DreamWakers, we expose students in low-income communities to exceptional leaders who shape the industries of today. Why? Because it is our sincere belief that through these interactive conversations, our next generation will be inspired to not only strive for but also create the careers of tomorrow. It’s a mission we are enormously privileged to be a part of, and one that energizes us as we walk into work each and every day. If we had to summarize 2017 in one word, it would be growth. For the third year in a row, DreamWakers doubled the number of students served through our highly engaging “flashchats” program. Since launching DreamWakers in October 2014, the goal of every flashchat has been to add value to the classroom by helping students see the relationship between what they learn in school and the real world; increasing their interest in specific subjects; encouraging students to build their own personal vision; exposing students to new cultures and professional role models beyond their immediate surroundings; and enhancing students’ public speaking and critical thinking skills. As we begin to plan for the coming year, we want to use this Progress Report as an opportunity to highlight all that our team accomplished in the past year, and share our ambitious goals for 2018. Specifically, DreamWakers seeks to extend our impact by focusing on three core areas:

Serving 10,000 Students Across All 50 States - We aim to have served 10,000 students in classrooms across all 50 states. We seek to accomplish this by partnering with more exceptional counselors who work in schools that serve high rates of low-income families, since counselors play a critical role in teaching "soft skills," such as conflict resolution, time management, and interviewing techniques, to help students succeed in the working world.

Expanding Our Network of Exceptional, Vetted, Volunteer Speakers by 30% - We aim to grow our world-class volunteer speaker community by 30%, with a specific focus on expanding the number of speakers who are first-generation college students and first-generation immigrants, since many of our students can relate to these individuals’ unique experiences navigating pathways to college and career success.

Strengthening Our Corporate Partnership Program by Doubling Donations - We aim to double donations generated from our Corporate Partnership Program, with a specific focus on collaborating with companies that can show students how they can leverage their interest in math, science and the humanities to build meaningful careers. We plan to hire our first-ever Executive Director to play a key role in leading this exciting initiative.

We continuously strive to be good stewards of your investments—whether they come in the form of time, energy, or financial contributions. Thank you for your continued support and belief in our mission. We couldn’t do it without you! With gratitude,

Monica Gray Logothetis CEO and Co-founder

DREAMWAKERS MISSION Connecting Classrooms to Careers

Students We Serve & Why

As seen in the The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Forbes, DreamWakers is a national nonprofit that uses free video chat services to bring diverse and dynamic leaders into under-resourced school classrooms. Working with 4th-12th grade teachers in schools where at least 50% of the student body qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch, DreamWakers connects classrooms to vetted professionals who work at places such as: Amazon, Apple, JetBlue, Makerbot 3D Printing, the U.S. Department of State, and the White House.

We focus on serving students from low-income families because research shows that their opportunities to interact with professional role models are far fewer as compared to their wealthier peers. Did you know that by the age of six, low-income students spend 1,300 fewer hours outside of their home relative to their affluent peers? In addition to having fewer opportunities to experience museums, parks, and other cultural touchstones, these students also have fewer opportunities to interact with role models they can identify with in the professional world. By the time they finish high school, only 9% of those students go on to graduate from college compared to 77% of their more affluent peers.

70% of classrooms had never hosted a speaker from outside their city

88%

Linking Lessons to the Real World DreamWakers' virtual sessions last 45 minutes, and are called "flashchats." Each flashchat is designed to shed light on the real-world applicability of course lessons, while inspiring students to plan for future life and career opportunities. Every flashchat adds classroom value:

• • • • • •

Ties class to real-world issues Increases subject matter interest Encourages students to build their own personal vision Builds strong critical and comprehensive thinking skills Exposes students to new cultures and professional role models beyond and within their immediate surroundings Enhances public speaking skills and confidence

of students had not previously met someone in the profession of their speaker

96% of classrooms were still talking about their flashchat days after they hosted a speaker

91% of students had not previously spoken to a real-world professional over video chat

Whether these students are in grade school, high school, or college, the chances are stacked against them when it comes to meaningful, inspiring interaction with professionals in the working world. A staggering 2/3 of U.S. employers report having little to no interaction with classrooms. Even more striking is the fact that 65% of today’s students will be employed in jobs that don’t yet exist. So the question we are trying to answer is this: if young, economically disadvantaged students aren’t exposed to a wide range of diverse and exciting career possibilities, how can they prepare? Better yet, if they aren’t exposed to exceptional leaders shaping the industries of today, how can they be inspired to create the careers of tomorrow?

URBAN & RURAL DREAM STORIES Did you know that DreamWakers serves a student population that is approximately 50% urban and 50% rural? Students in both of these learning environments face unique obstacles and opportunities, giving DreamWakers the chance to serve these populations in creative ways. The below stories offer examples of how DreamWakers is connecting both urban and rural students to #DreamSpeakers whose life experiences resonate and whose stories of career success inspire them to dream big about their futures.

URBAN DREAM STORY In June, one of DreamWakers’ veteran and most impressive speakers, Maurice “Moe” Owens, spoke at the eighth grade commencement for students at KIPP STAR Middle School in Harlem, New York City, a class which he had only previously met virtually. He recounted his childhood growing up in the Bronx and his career in the Air Force, which brought him to places like Japan and Iraq. He also shared how he then earned his way through the ranks at the White House from A/V Installer to Special Assistant to the Chief of Staff. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama took notice of his ability to connect with visitors, and recruited him to assist with outreach programs. He now runs a major office of an international corporation in Washington, D.C., but he has not forgotten his Bronx roots. Moe reminded the students that given their shared background, their journeys Moe, left, pictured with a too would not be without disappointment. However, he KIPP STAR graduate. encouraged the students to “always find opportunity in disappointment.” Richard, one of the graduating students, said it best: "after hearing Mr. Owens speak, I will take away the fact that even though I might not be in the best neighborhood in the world, I still have a high chance of becoming who I want to be, and becoming an important figure in this world."

The graduation ceremony was held in Convent Avenue Baptist Church in Harlem, minutes away from where Moe spent his childhood.

URBAN & RURAL DREAM STORIES RURAL DREAM STORY Bluefield, Virginia (population: 4,968) is located in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. The area was once a booming center of the coal mining industry but has faced a decline in recent years. However, these economic setbacks have not dampened the desire of DreamWakers 2017 Teacher of the Year Valencia Angles, to inspire greatness in her students. As a DreamTeacher fellow, Valencia and her class participated with other schools from across the country in a special International Women's Day partnership between DreamWakers and L'Oréal USA. During a flashchat with Jessica Hauff, Vice President of Digital Marketing for L'Oréal, Ms. Hauff invited Valencia and her class to visit the L'Oréal headquarters

DreamTeacher Testimonial: Valencia Angles "I honestly don't think you realize the impact of these chats on the lives of these students and their families. Parents cannot say enough positive things about what you're doing [and] the confidence their children are gaining. The kids still talk about the people they've talked to the past few months and linking that information. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Students participating in a career building exercise at the L'Oréal Headquarters in Hudson Yards, NY.

Valencia did not hesitate to say yes to this incredible opportunity for her students, and over the next several weeks she tirelessly worked to make that New York City visit become a reality. During the trip, Valencia's students visited the DreamWakers office, explored Central Park, and got a personalized tour of the L'Oréal USA headquarters. The entire experience was an important example of the power of human connections, both online and in person.

In 2017, Valencia linked her students with DreamSpeakers from around the world, including: Andrea Richter, Former Advance Lead to the President, the White House Candace Rose Rardon, Artist and Illustrator Dan Mehring, Diplomat, the State Department Eric Shulze, VP Research, Memphis Meats Jeff Young, Professor of Surgery, UVA Medical Center Jonah Stewart, Corporate Account Executive, DC United Karlie Kloss, Supermodel and Founder, Kode with Klossy Kevin Van Valkenburg, Senior Writer, ESPN

FIVE FEATURED PARTNERSHIPS OF 2017 Virginia College Advising Corps DreamWakers partnered with the Virginia College Advising Corps (VCAC) to help pursue our joint mission of enhancing students’ interests in various career options while simultaneously preparing them for undergraduate college studies. From January to June 2017, DreamWakers hosted 50 flashchats in VCAC classrooms! The partnership helped make important college-preparation resources available to thousands of high school students in Virginia.

Ron Brown Scholar Program and Techqueria This year we celebrated Black History Month and National Hispanic Heritage month in partnership with two incredible organizations: The Ron Brown Scholar Program and Techqueria, respectively. The Ron Brown Scholar Program provides scholars with the financial resources to attend some of the finest colleges and universities in the country. Techqueria is a professional community for latinxs working in STEM fields focused on bringing access to tech for low-income communities. We are honored to work with such superb partner organizations.

The State Department Office of Public Engagement This year we increased students' international perspective by connecting classrooms to speakers around the globe through our partnership with The State Department Office of Public Engagement. This series enabled us to bring professionals like Dan Mehring, a Foreign Service Officer based in Baghdad, Iraq, into a middle school civics classroom in Tazewell County, VA. We also connected Sunshine Ison, a Cultural and Educational Affairs Officer based in Lima, Peru, to students more than 3,000 miles away in Independence, KY (Ms. Ison's home state!). By creating these connections between students and leaders working in public service, we hope to increase their understanding of the role the United States government plays in the international arena and highlight the wide array of career paths available within the federal government.

FIVE FEATURED PARTNERSHIPS OF 2017 The White House Historical Association On Wednesdays throughout the spring and fall semesters, we brought outstanding leaders in careers connected to the White House into Social Studies classrooms across the country. In partnership with the White House Historical Association's Teacher Institute, our popular #WhiteHouseWednesdays series exposes students to the unique careers at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, from political correspondents to presidential schedulers. Speakers from the series included Stewart McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association; Yohannes Abraham, former Senior Advisor to the National Economic Council; Gregory Lorjuste, Director of Scheduling for President Barack Obama; and Anita McBride, former Assistant to President George W. Bush and Chief of Staff to First Lady Laura Bush.

Tapping Into Technology To Bring Hamilton To The Classroom These days when one hears a reference to "Hamilton," often the first thought that comes to mind is the landmark Lin-Manuel Miranda musical that has captivated audiences around the world. But this isn't the case for Kris Larson's 12th grade class in St. Joseph, Missouri. When they hear "Hamilton," they light up with excitement, eager to share stories about the scholarly research they've conducted on the Founding Father himself. Last semester, these young history buffs virtually met an original Hamilton scholar, Dr. Stephen F. Knott, Professor of National Security Affairs at the United States Naval War College and author of Washington and Hamilton: the Alliance that Founded America. After the chat, Dr. Knott mailed copies of his book to the students and said, "My conversation with them convinced me that our nation's best days lie ahead of us. Anyone who interacts with these students would realize that the stereotypes one hears about young Americans is way off the mark. I cannot think of a more rewarding program."

CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM DreamWakers’ Corporate Partnership Program works with outstanding private sector leaders to bring their passion and purpose into classrooms across the country. DreamWakers has four partnership levels: DreamTeam, DreamChampion, DreamAchiever, and DreamPlayer. The associated corporate donation of each level ranges from $1,000 to $25,000, and helps cover the extensive preparation that goes into each flashchat experience, as well as its day-of execution. By joining forces with DreamWakers, corporate partners will: Inspire our next generation of young talent to explore pursuing careers in their industry. Expose a wider array of students to professional role models with whom they would not otherwise interact. Recruit new talent by shining a light on their core mission and culture of rich public service. Give back in more classrooms and communities nationwide, more efficiently, all without even leaving the office.

Last August, in honor of National Aviation Week, DreamWakers partnered with corporate partner JetBlue to give students from Virginia a virtual tour of the company’s hangar at JFK Airport in New York. Their tour guide was JetBlue’s Manager of Technical Operations, Archie, whose first encounter with an airplane was in the Marine Corps when he was just 17 years old. “I’ve been around airplanes a long, long time. This is my passion…I can’t describe to you how great it makes me feel when I see these airplanes take off every single day, knowing that I had a part in [it].” It was an incredible learning experience for all involved, especially since most of the students had never before been on an airplane.

“My name is Fade Ojeikere, but to my students my name is 'Mr. O.’ My students, all of the ones I have had the pleasure of standing in front of, many of them had dreams but they were limited. Until DreamWakers came along, they never knew what else was out there. They didn’t know that being a CNN reporter IS possible, that being the adviser to a president IS possible, that being a diplomat IS possible, that being an entrepreneur that starts their own app IS possible. DreamWakers even Mr. O photographed at the helped take my class to DC to visit the White House and DreamWakers 2017 Fall Fundraiser. Capitol Hill after their DreamSpeaker extended an invitation. This gave my kids the experience of a lifetime. Thanks to DreamWakers, my students are constantly meeting leaders who look like them and who have had many of the same experiences as them.

DreamWakers Advisory Council Perspective “My name is Gaurav and I am a venture capital investor in NYC. I have had the honor of serving for two years on the DreamWakers Advisory Council. I was introduced to DreamWakers two years ago and became enamored with its mission, drive, and impact on students. Their mission — to introduce students in high need schools across our country to different career paths and professional passions — is something that speaks to me on a personal level. My parents immigrated to the country just before I was born and I understand the difficulties in starting over in a new country. Fortunately, I got to watch my parents live out their version of the American Dream and “make it.” While this was a result of their incredible work ethic, I also know that there was more than just work ethic at play — there was a large tilt in fate in favor of our family as well. I continue to support DreamWakers because I see this organization serving as that tilt in fate in the lives of so many students, and doing its part to improve their future chances of success.”
