"I Have A Dream" - New York (Jun-Sep 2016)
One day, all children in the New York metro area will have the opportunity to pursue higher education and to fully capitalize on their talents, aspirations, and leadership to have fulfilling careers and create a better world.
The mission of the “I Have A Dream” Foundation - New York (IHDF-NY) is to motivate and empower children living in low-income communities to reach their educational and career potential by providing a long-term program of academic support, mentoring, enrichment and tuition assistance for higher education.
Today, less than 40% of children in under-served communities will graduate high school, and only 10% will earn a bachelor’s degree.
We are changing this reality by providing a program of academic support and a comprehensive youth development program for our ‘Dreamers,’ from their early elementary years all the way through college. Upon high school graduation, each Dreamer receives tuition assistance for higher education.
