Inside the DREAM: 2014 Update

Dreamers,

It has been a short while since you have heard from the Co-Founders on the blog. I want to take some time to connect with you and let you know what is going on inside the world of D.R.E.A.M. As you prepare to break out the swimming trunks, sunscreen, and Ray-ban shades for the summer I want to provide you with some brief, but important updates.

We are experiencing an exciting year of growth at D.R.E.A.M. 2014 will prove to be one of our most dynamic years ever.  As you all are aware, in 2013 we embarked on an expansion plan to reach students all across America. This led to the change of our url to www.dream-usa.org which better represented our new mission.  It is with great excitement that I announce that our next city of operation will be Chicago, IL!  We look forward to having a huge impact on the lives of urban youth in the greater Chicago area.  At this time, we are seeking passionate volunteers to join our Chi-town team and bolster our presence in the city. If you are interested in getting involved, please email us at info@dream-nyc.org.
