Dreams for Kids is a place where young people of all abilities are empowered to fearlessly pursue their dreams and compassionately change the world.
Our dynamic leadership programs and life-changing activities include:
Dream Leaders- a leadership program that unites children of diverse backgrounds through community service and service learning through our After-school Clubs, In-school workshops, and We are the Change Conferences. Extreme Recess!- an adaptive sports program offering children with physical and developmental disabilities the opportunity to participate in adventure activities, often for the very first time. Holiday for Hope- a holiday celebration that provides food, entertainment, gifts, and most of all, hope for over 2,000 children in Chicago and ten other participating countries Global Projects- our innovative projects give shelter, clean drinking water, education, sustainable income, and support to those who need it most in Ghana, India, Mexico, Uganda, and Sudan. Dreams for Kids is rooted in the belief that every person has the ability to help make change possible. If we come together as one compassionate force and support our youth in every way, we can eliminate isolation and inspire an army of goodwill ambassadors to transform the world.
