I had the great pleasure and privilege to serve at-risk youth with Dare to Dream in the late 90's. Their mission of reaching out and impacting young people heading in the wrong direction was pursued with great passion. Though many at-risk youth were not interested in the efforts of 'do-gooders' trying to help them, it was wonderful to see some respond to the love and care being shown them and begin to turn their lives around. The camaraderie among the volunteers was amazing.

I met Jan while attending Hillcrest Church in the 90's. She is an amazing, godly woman who is so committed to her relationship with the Lord and to her ministry, Dare to Dream. Jan is very diligent and persevering and as a result the children she touches in her ministry are experiencing the love of God, and for many, for the first time in their life. She is a wonderful role model in many ways. Many blessings and prosperity on Dare to Dream so Jan can continue to bring joy and hope into the lives of so many kids who feel they've been left behind. Live on Dare to Dream!

I was lucky enough to meet Jan in 2000. I participated in mentoring of youth at several locations in the DFW area. I was impressed with Jan's heart for children and her compassion when it came to helping them get through their tough times growing up. It was a pleasure being a part of her organization and being able to be a positive influence on the children that we mentored. If you have a heart for seeing the lives of today's youth changed, then DTDCF is one organization that you can support and know that a difference is being made locally and around the world with Jan's help.

No one cares more about kids with disfunctional backgrounds than Jan Tennyson. I found that out when I first volunteered to be a part of the Dare To Dream "Team." Prison Ministry is a strong calling for me. I talk to lots of adult inmates who come from unhealthy environments, many of whom would not have continued on their path of lawless behaviour had someone like Jan come into their lives when they were teenagers.

Jan is unflagging in her determination to continue to make a difference in the lives of young people. It is an honor and a privilege to serve with her in that effort.

I volunteered to be on one of the many teams that Dare to Dream operates in the county of Dallas, Texas. The detention center houses up to 100 children ages from 7 up to 17 awaiting their trials or release dates. You can see the same faces for several month until their cases are determined. I talked privately with them to find out their greatest need, which for many was someone to listen to them and prayed with them. Some accepted Jesus Christ as their savior with tears in their eyes, many needed more time and understanding because the world had roughly treated them robbing many of their innocence. They are all a work in progress because of their environment, but Dare to Dream makes a significant impact while they are incarcerated. The world I live in is very troubled and it's up to me to help change the youth's attitude that each person can Dare to Dream of a better, more loving and caring world tomorrow. I am now a resident Missionary to Haiti.

Increase the volunteers to impact more children in more places in each city. The more you give to the children of your time and experience and love, the more it impacts their lives for good. This works anywhere in the world.

I have known Jan Tennyson and her work with the children's foundation since 2000. As she and the teams she trains reach out to youth in detention centers, orphanages and the foster care system, I have seen the effect her message of faith, hope and love has brought to hundreds, perhaps thousands. She inspires and builds self esteem in youth who see no hope, have received little love and possess little self esteem. Her teams share from their heart and there is always a positive response by the youth who see someone who genuinely cares about them. This organization has reached out for 20 years to lift up disadvantaged youth. I am proud to be a friend of Jan Tennyson's and to have had the privilege of volunteering in Dare to Dream.

Dare to Dream Foundation has made such an impact in my life because of the volunteers associated with this organization. The founder and the volunteers are all solid individuals who are truly impacting the youth of this generation. They not only reach out with their acts of service, but they really love and care for them. You can see it in the way they communicate with the youth. I have seen different youth's lives be changed and transformed because of the work they are doing. The volunteers are sensitive to the youth and what they have gone through but are not afraid to boldly speak life into their lives and to speak truth into their spirits. The founder is the most loving person I know. She makes the foundation different and unique because of her love for God and her love for youth and all people. She is an inspiration for all and any youth that comes in contact with her can't help but be touched by her love whether they know it or not.

Try to get the word out more in churches and the work place to get more volunteers because it is so great

the other volunteer workers--they are all solid people with great characters

Do so much for the youth of this nation and other nations as well!

Ways to make it better...

the founder could be there at every volunteer opportunity but of course that is impossible-she can't be everywhere at all times!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

needing more volunteers who are able to take leadership roles and carry it even further--help the founder out with the vision she has

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love it!
