The Dream Path offers friendship and mentoring of parents for the sake of their children’s success, using a birth through post college curriculum and relationships as the foundation to make sure children have the tools to succeed.
Working with youth ages 14 to 18 from families of intergenerational poverty, the program focuses on increased academic achievement, attainment of high school diplomas, increased employment skills and attainment of employment.
The families who qualify for our Alternative Education Program are committed to providing a better life for their children through a private school education. Join Hands helps these families pay for tuition and the families participate in our Mentoring Program.
High school students agree to become “big brothers“ and “big sisters“ to younger children. They meet as a group regularly for fun activities. The “Bigs“ benefit from being role models and the “Littles“ have someone who cares about them.
Adult volunteers act as “big sisters“ or “big brothers,“ to boys and girls, encouraging their self-image and self-esteem, encouraging them to grow and develop in order to reach their full potential and to temporarily take them out of their often harsh environment.
