Mentoring

Adult volunteer mentors are needed to provide Dreamer Scholars with long-term, reliable, and supportive relationships, to offer one-on-one guidance and support, and to serve as positive role models. Mentors see their Dreamer Scholar at least twice per month for a minimum one-year commitment , participating in fun activities. This is one volunteer opportunity that is not academically focused. Every volunteer should establish a safe, meaningful, and trusting relationship with the Dreamer Scholar.

Mission Statement

Mission: To empower children from low-income communities to succeed in school, college, and career by providing academic, social, and emotional support from elementary school through college, along with a post-secondary tuition assistance scholarship. Vision: Our dream is a world where all children have equal access to the educational and career opportunities that will ignite their innate potential.

Description

Since 1990, IHDF Boulder County has served more than 1,000 local youth, and currently has 12 active Dreamer Scholar Classes. The model, with its one-on-one attention and daily programming, has proven to narrow the opportunity gap. Dreamer Scholars graduate from high school, enroll in post-secondary programming, and complete their post-secondary education at much higher rates than their low-income peers.
