Originally founded in 1991 as Harlem RBI, DREAM has grown to annually serve more than 2,500 youth across East Harlem and the South Bronx through a network of six PreK-12, extended-day, extended-year DREAM Charter Schools and community sports-based youth development programs. Through our commitment to rigorous academics, social-emotional learning, deep family and community engagement, and health and wellness, we create lifelong learners who are equipped to fulfill their vision of success in and out of the classroom. We dream big, as well, with an aggressive five-year plan to expand to serve 3,500 students across seven schools - growing our organization’s impact and leveling the playing field for all children.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION:

At DREAM, diversity, equity, and inclusion are a matter of mission.


From our schools to our playing fields, DREAM is committed to building a team where each individual can bring their full identity and experience to volunteer because representation matters - it enriches our team culture, enhances our ability to innovate, and strengthens our impact in and out of the classroom. DREAM engages volunteers that represent and appreciate the diversity of our majority Black and Hispanic student body, while working to ensure that our practices are equitable, welcoming, and productive. We are dedicated to creating a world where youth, especially youth of color, have permission to dream - along with the tools and opportunities to make their dreams reality.
