ABOUT US DREAM ACADEMY

OUR MISSION

To inspire and elevate the lives of children of incarcerated parents and vulnerable young people through high-performance relationships with caring adults. We seek to maximize their potential by building dreams, perseverance, academic skills and character.

THE NEED - MENTORING GAP

For over 20 years, U.S. Dream Academy has served over 10,000 children living in neighborhoods harmed by high rates of incarceration. While we’ve impacted many lives over the years, there is a still a huge mentoring gap in the U.S. — 1 in 3 children between ages 8 – 18 do not have a mentor.

Our goal is to ensure that every student in our after-school mentoring program is matched with a caring mentor. In addition, you can help us reach a larger number of students as we begin to offer online tutoring in math and language arts to students across the U.S. — Education is a critical key to success life! Make a donation of ONLY $25 to provide online academic assistance for a yeat to help improve a child’s academic performance.
