We pick up the pieces of broken lives of at-risk youth to meet their emotional and spiritual needs - enabeling them to turn the tide of destructive behavior by providing educational enrichment programs to prevent crime and overcome problems of drug and alcohol abuse, juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy, the school drop-out rate, and teen suicide. Most of the youth we serve are fatherless or have a mom working two jobs. Many have no guidence from a parent and end up in jail or on the streets of our cities.

Dare to Dream is a charity that makes a difference for at risk youth, and can truly make our world a better place. Sharing God's word and life through Christ with music, caring, and heart felt stories in small groups and 1 to 1 can be all some people need to change the direction of their life. I joined Jan as an advisory board member many years ago and have been blessed by a long association.
