They Did It! Congrats, Grads!
Ten years ago, 50 third through sixth grade youth living in Boulder Housing Partner sites joined our Iris Dreamer Class, led by program director Francisco Mejias. These students have been graduating each year, over the past three years, with the last of the group finishing high school this year. We are so proud that 93% of these youth graduated high school and 85% are going to college!

We want to thank the Iris Class Sponsors for investing in these Dreamer Scholars!

Host an AmeriCorps Member in 2018-19
AmeriHosts Jim and Edie
"I Have A Dream" partners with Notre Dame Mission Volunteers AmeriCorps, placing nearly 40 AmeriCorps volunteers each year. AmeriCorps commit to serve an American community for at least one year as a full time volunteer -- like the Peace Corps here at home.

We need hosts mid-August 2018 through July 2019. Hosting could mean renting a room in your house for a nominal fee (we suggest $100/month), or having them help with the house, yard, pets, or kids in exchange. Contact Elyana Funk to become an AmeriHost!

Thanks to tennis professionals such as Duke Paluch of Rocky Mountain Tennis Cente r , Gonzalo Garcia of Gonzo Tennis , and many other instructors, Dreamer Scholars are learning tennis and loving it!
