Student Dream trains black and brown youth to build wealth. We create courses, media, and music around personal finance, investing, entrepreneurship and music licensing.
Student Dream is a financial education charity that trains black and brown youth to build wealth.
We are the 21st century vision of Dr. King’s beloved community where freedom rings "from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city." A community where "we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: "Free at last! Free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
In 2019, Black families' median wealth was $24,100 (Fed Reserve). That's not the mountaintop that Dr. King, the muse of Student Dream, envisioned for the Negro in America. WE are changing this.
Our Money Matters, Wealth Matters, Startup, Music Money, and Money Makers program creates economic gardens in desolate communities.
Our work has been featured in Blavity, Black Enterprise and BET.
*While our aim and theory of change is to intentionally close economic gaps in historically oppressed communities (black, latino, indigenous), we joyfully serve and collaborate with students, volunteers, staff, mentors and partners from all ethnic backgrounds. Our mission is built on MLK Junior's vision of a beloved community.
