Dream Power is a character and leadership development program designed to empower girls to build bright and bold futures by nurturing positive self-expression and personal development. We offer life-changing experiences and real solutions to the unique issues girls face. Through fun and innovative activities the girls are encouraged to recognize and mobilize their true selves as a means of exerting a positive change in the world around them. The girls are taught a variety of life skills, how to set and achieve goals, boldly confront challenges, resist peer pressure, see college as attainable, participate in team building and community related projects.

Mentoring plays a big role in our Girls Empowerment Program. It is designed to create one-to-one mentoring relationships between positive adult role models and youth facing challenges in their personal, social and/or academic lives. Mentoring takes place in two forms: (1) Traditional one to one mentoring and (2) group mentoring through bi-weekly workshops.

Mentor Program Goals
1. Increase girls’ sense of self worth
2. Improve their academic performance & perspective on education
3. Help girls develop and define their short-term and long-term goals
4. Encourage social awareness through community service projects
5. Build positive relationships and support networks with adults and peers

Christmas Dreams by Slidely Slideshow
Every year, as the holidays approach, families around the world gather together to celebrate with festive decorations, feasts of all flavors and varieties and also an exchange of gifts. What’s very easy to forget during these times of feasting and celebrating is the fact that there are so many families in the world that are struggling just to put food on the table for the kids, holiday gifts and elaborate parties just aren’t in the picture for them. Every year iDream seeks to bring the magic of Christmas to poor children and their families through our Christmas Dreams Celebration. It is a time filled with food, fun, laughter and of course gifts for the whole family. Last year, we created a Christmas Store for our girls and provided food for their entire family. The girls and their family members were given shopping bags and gift boxes and had the opportunity to pick out whatever they like. We are thankful for the opportunity to be able to serve our youth in this manner. Our girls, of course, were very happy. One of our students, Kalisha stated: “I can’t believe I went Christmas shopping without money”. She was able to pick out items for herself and her family. The joy of giving. #TeamiDream
