One person at a time, the DC|DC inspires youth and adults to dare to dream and learn to lead, so that they reach their God-given potential.The DC Dream Center is a center for community where the needs of people in our city, especially youth, are met. From mentoring and tutoring to personal development and legal assistance, the DC|DC encompasses a spectrum of programs from low-barrier after-school activities and tutoring, to programs that offer deeper engagement such as one-on-one mentoring. We are dedicated to serving the needs of the community through a holistic approach.
The DC Dream Center mentoring program aims to partner children with loving, consistent adults. This is a Christian, faith-based program with the intention of assisting the development of self-reliant young adults who want to serve and follow Jesus with their lives.
1. This mentoring program requires a commitment of ten hours a month over the course of one year. If you are leaving DC in less than 18 months, or you can't give 10 hours a month, this program is not the right fit for you. 2. We are a Christian faith-based mentoring program. There are several non-religious mentoring programs that do excellent work in DC, but we are not one of them. Our faith shapes the program in several ways, not the least of which is that we pray with our mentees, and when appropriate, we teach them scripture.
