Mission Statement

To develop the athletic, educational, and life skills of young people in disadvantaged areas of the District of Columbia while increasing their self-esteem. The program is motivated by the belief that there is great value in combining athletic, educational, and citizenship training in a way that connects and reinforces the three for children.

Description

Fields of Dreams is an out-of-school time children and youth development program that operates in 6 District of Columbia Public Schools in 5 wards across the city and offers a free after school program and summer camp. We use softball/baseball as the foundation to teach our participants (we refer to them as â  Dreamersâ  ) life skills and academics. Half of the time Dreamers are learning the game on the field and the other half of the time is spent in the classroom participating in reading, writing, math, nutrition, health, community service, and values lessons.
