Program Description

Our Work

Colorado "I Have A Dream" Foundation works to ensure that all children have the opportunity to pursue higher education, fulfill their potential, and achieve their dreams. We support children ("Dreamers") in their journey to graduate from college by equipping them with the skills and knowledge to succeed in post-secondary opportunities and provide tuition support to remove financial barriers. By helping our Dreamers gain access to college, we are putting them on a different academic and life trajectory, while having a broader impact on the students' families and the generations that follow.

We provide academic and social-emotional support to Dreamers, equipping them with the confidence and life skills needed to pursue their most ambitious dreams.

Mission

Colorado "I Have a Dream" Foundation provides long-term support to children and youth living in under-resourced communities to achieve their full potential, by promoting from an early age, values of higher education and career success, with opportunity guaranteed through financial resources, and other services.

Vision

Our dream is a world where every child has equal access to educational and career opportunities that will ignite their innate potential.
