Review for Dreams For Kids, Inc., Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The time I got to spend with Dreams for Kids was one of the most rewarding experiences of my lifetime. I enjoyed waking up for work everyday- as I would walk into an office of friendly people that were passionate about empowering youth and enacting social change. What made my job so rewarding though, was not only the people I worked with, but also seeing the work in the office pay off. Having the opportunity to travel to numerous Dreams for Kids events, I was able to see firsthand the impact DFK had on these children’s lives. Seeing these kids so grateful to be apart of this organization really demonstrated how powerful it truly is. This power is growing as DFK is teaching children all over country and the global community to pay to forward.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people I worked with and the teenagers that I got to meet. Seeing these teenagers in wheelchairs or that have nothing were incredibly inspiring as they were grateful for what they had and understood the concept that everyone has something to give.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate about their jobs, unique and always willing to help. Everyone brought something different to the table, and everyone shared the common goal/mission of DFK.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open numerous offices throughout the country, expand global initiatives, facilitate dream leaders conferences globally, host extreme recess events nationally, and have dream leaders all over come together in a collective effort to empower youth.
