MISSION DREAM’s mission is to provide inner-city youth with opportunities to Play, Learn, and Grow. We use the power of teams to coach, teach, and inspire youth to recognize their potential and realize their dreams. DREAM youth play on ball fields, playgrounds, and gyms. They learn how to think critically, ask hard questions, and self-advocate—in and out of school. And they grow with teammates, classmates, teachers, and coaches— all year long. DREAM youth are competent, confident, and caring individuals who will make a positive difference in the world.

Isaac, DreamWorks Participant, 12th Grade


PLAY In baseball, you set your own limits.



People try to place limits on kids like me about how far we can go, especially in my community. But in baseball, you create your own floor and your own ceiling. I play to become a better player

and a better person. I play to succeed because that means my teammates succeed. I play for social justice and education reform. It’s bigger than me.


LEARN I want to open people’s eyes.

I want people to see the world beyond themselves. That’s why I love to write. At DREAM, I learn about history and current events, and I channel what I learn into my writing, whether it’s a play about immigration for my

literature class, or an essay on the healthcare debate. There is power in writing, and I am eager to discover how I can harness that power and use it to make an impact.

Vanessa, DREAM Charter High School Scholar, 9th Grade

Celine, DREAM Charter Middle School Scholar, 8th Grade 12



GROW I want to be a neurosurgeon.

I know high school will be hard and college will be even harder. And then, there’s medical school. But I won’t give up. When you have a dream, it shows what your purpose is and what you are working toward. At DREAM, I learn to build a mindset to persevere. I will become a neurosurgeon.



Travis Walls, Coach of the Year (South Bronx Pride), DREAM Staff


COACH For one, I learn cool lingo that keeps me young.



But I coach to win—and I’m not just talking about games. That moment when a kid catches the ball for the first time or when he nails down a math concept— that’s what I call a victory.

If you want to move the needle in a community and in the arc of a young person’s life, you volunteer at DREAM.


TEACH It’s endless work but it’s worth it.

I don’t look for perfect students. Bring me the kids who don’t want to learn. My dream is to raise them into confident students who believe they can become better each day. I want my kids

to invest in their own growth as learners, thinkers, and change makers so that they can develop deep passions and interests to pursue.
