10th Annual Dream-Maker Breakfast 
Supports Dreamer Scholars

 
On March 15, the 10th Annual Dream-Maker Breakfast raised funds to sponsor Dreamer Scholars in the St. Vrain Valley School District. We'll provide comprehensive, year-round programming to support them to and through college! Thanks to our underwriters, table hosts, speakers, and guests for supporting our community.

Didn't get to make a gift or pledge? It's not too late -- and many more children need your help.
  Many thanks to our event underwriters!

Career Readiness Bootcamp 
Preps High Schoolers for Success   
In March, 36 high school students from "I Have A Dream" and our partner organizations spent two Saturdays learning interview skills, resume writing, and creating a LinkedIn profile. The workshops and lessons were presented by Workforce Boulder County at the University of Colorado-Boulder Leeds School of Business, and concluded with mock interviews with community volunteers. Our thanks to all those who volunteered to prepare our students for the workforce!

Participants can apply for paid summer internships at local businesses who are hosting interns, including the Boulder Chamber of Commerce, CU-Boulder, Boulder Housing Partners, Boulder Public Library, the County's District Attorney's Office, Vertiba, and many more.
 
"I Have A Dream" supports youth with opportunities like these through our College and Career Department. In addition to the Career Readiness Bootcamp and paid summer internships, we arrange job shadows, college visits, college and scholarship application support, and more. We truly walk with our kids to and through post-secondary education... and our results are amazing! 
 
 
 
Longmont's Rocky Mountain Dreamer Scholars Explore Outdoors
   
Spring break brought adventure and learning for our sixth graders from Trail Ridge Middle School. They spent three days at High Trails Outdoor Education Center, exploring nature and studying the history and science of the world around us, assisted by volunteer camp counselors from Longmont's Silver Creek High School.

"I Have A Dream's" program offers Dreamer Scholars STEM and enrichment opportunities all year round, including time outdoors and in the Rocky Mountains.
Ball Corporation Funds STEM Focus
 
"I Have A Dream" corporate partner Ball Corporation is making a difference in our community with a $10,000 grant to "I Have A Dream" Foundation of Boulder County. Dreamer Scholars get the wrap-around services they need to make it to and through college, with specific support for studies in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
Ball Corporation's generous support provides tutoring and enrichment for kids from first grade through high school at "I Have A Dream's" in-school, after school, and summer learning programs.
