The DREAM Project
September 16, 2010

I came upon the DREAM Project while searching for a fun, feel good way to start off my summer. I had just graduated college, and signed up to volunteer at their annual five week summer camp. It didn't take much time for me to make connections with the community. I became passionate and determined to understand the culture, the educational system, and the incredible individuals I've been fortunate to get to know. I decided 5 weeks was no where near enough time to make a difference; so I went back to Boston to pack up my things and signed on as a year long volunteer with DREAM. It was the best decision I have ever made, I wouldn't trade it for the world. The DREAM Project is a well respected organization
