About U.S. Dream Academy


8807 Colesville Road, 5th Fl, Silver Spring, MD 20910, US

Mission Statement

The mission of U.S. Dream Academy is to inspire and invest in the lives of children of incarcerated parents and families in communities harmed by systemic inequities by providing them with academic, social, and values enrichment through supportive mentoring and tutoring.


The U.S. Dream Academy is an after-school program that aims to break the cycle of incarceration by giving children the skills and vision necessary to lead productive and fulfilling lives. Since its inception in 1998, U.S. Dream Academy has served over 11,000 students in 10 cities nationwide. U.S. Dream Academy's model combines strong academic-support with one-to-one and group mentoring in a community-based after-school setting. We have recently expanded our model to also provide virtual mentoring, where students and mentors meet via a secure, online platform. We’re not looking for superheroes - just everyday, awesome people like YOU, from the community, who want to help empower children to reach their full potential.
