About

The "I Have a Dream" Foundation's mission statement: The mission of the "I Have a Dream" program is to motivate and empower children from low-income communities to reach their education and career goals by providing a long-term intervention program of mentoring, tutoring, and cultural enrichment.

Program Volunteer Commitment: One day each week during the fall semester

Time: after-school hours (3:00pm-5:30pm)

Ideal Volunteer: Someone who enjoys working with youth and is flexible, energetic, patient, and thrives in a hands-on environment that can be characterized as having a "buzz of productivity."
