A dream, realized.
Our commitment is to ensure that our Dreamers have the opportunity to pursue higher education, capitalize on their talents and aspirations so they may have fulfilling careers and become proud and productive citizens.
Our approach is unique in that we sponsor entire grade levels of 50-100 students at a Miami Dade Public School in a distressed neighborhood, and work with these “Dreamers” from early elementary school all the way through high school. Upon high school graduation, each Dreamer receives a guaranteed tuition of up to $3,000 per year for four years at a Florida State University or accredited vocational school.
