Target demographics: Children ages 3-18 who are living in poverty on the north coast of the Dominican Republic.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help translate our newsletter or other documents from English to Spanish (if in the US). Tutor a child, or teach a class (if in the DR).

Geographic areas served: Dominican Republic

Programs: DREAM is working with 4,000 students and providing over 600,000 teaching hours per year through several different programs. We have the Montessori early education program, which works with children aged 3-7 years old, teaching them to become more independent and self-disciplined, show initiative, develop a love for work, demonstrate that social relationships are based on respect, and communicate with appropriate language according to their age and maturity level. We offer High Quality Primary Education, which includes the Young Stars afterschool program, annual summer camps, music education, several libraries, and teacher training. Our Holistic Youth Development programs include A Ganar, which works with at-risk youth (ages 17 – 24) to help them secure employment and/or enter the formal educational system while developing skills to improve their quality of life. It also includes the health education program DPV, and a Documentation program.

Mission:
We believe that quality, early and continuing education is the most effective way to break the cycle of poverty and change destinies. Our mission is to run inclusive, sustainable education programs for children and youth in the Dominican Republic that can be replicated throughout impoverished global communities.
