Jr. Dream Team

A New Generation Of Emerging Leaders

Our Jr. Dream Team program, founded in 2015, partners with high schools and universities to empower student leaders to plan a Dream Experience for a fellow student living with special needs.

Social Responsibility

Schools are the reflection of a community. The Jr. Dream Team provides an opportunity and illustrates a need for businesses, civic and governmental groups, and community members to join together to huddle around the school and the Dream student. Their participation in events, fundraisers, and the community-wide Dream send-off reflect the community values that we are all in this together.

Leadership

In this authentic, real-world task, student leaders will set goals, establish priorities, solve problems, and influence their peers. As they find ways to unify their school around this common cause, they learn the valuable skills of teamwork, marketing, fundraising, and event planning.

Character Development

As students gain awareness and learn more about the Dream Students’ condition, the student body as a whole, develops a sense of empathy, compassion, and acceptance. A lasting sense of kindness can be seen and felt within the school culture. Students also have a chance to feel and witness the sheer power of giving to one of their own classmates and spark the desire for service over self.

Get Involved

We are currently working with schools in Charlotte, Atlanta and surrounding areas. Whether you are representing a school, you are a parent/guardian of a student or a own or work for a business interesting in sponsoring, someone on our team would like to connect.
