Announcing the Fall 2019
New Dreamer Scholar Class!
Thanks to generous donors at our 2018 Luncheon, we have funded and will be starting a new class of First Grade Dreamer Scholars this fall! Alicia Sanchez International Elementary School in Lafayette is the highest need elementary school in Boulder Valley School District.

Program Directors Lupita Sanchez and Sonia Rivera will be coordinating the three Alicia Sanchez programs. Lupita joined IHDF in 2018 as Program Director of the Alicia Class at Alicia Sanchez. Sonia graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2017 and began serving as a Notre Dame AmeriCorps member with the Alicia class in 2018. She is also an alumna of the ”I Have A Dream” Sanchez Class of 2012, which was led by Elyana Funk, now IHDF's Notre Dame AmeriCorps Site Director.
Of the new class, Sonia says, “I’m optimistic and ready for the birth of the newest Dreamer Scholar cohort in the fall. My hope is that, through the "I Have A Dream" program, students will learn more about themselves and others, the value of education, self-empowerment, and a close community.

Over the years, I have realized that my Program Director and AmeriCorps believed in me whole-heartedly, and I internalized this growth mindset, which I carry with me to this day. My goal is to expose the Dreamer Scholars to experiences, support, and knowledge that instills an unwavering understanding that they are strong , that they belong , and that they each have an important place in this world .”
Dreamer Scholar Conference Features Guest Career Speakers & Fun!
Over 250 of our students gathered together Friday, June 7th for our annual Dreamer Scholar Conference!

This year’s theme was Dreams to Reality, giving kids the chance to learn about a variety of post-secondary options and careers!

Awesome volunteers from Medtronic helped with logistics and facilitating the sessions!

Abe, a Dreamer Scholar alum now studying political science at Metro State, kicked the day off and told Dreamer Scholars, “Life isn’t about your failures, it’s about your attempts to jump over them.”
