A Child with a Dream is a Child with a Future - Wintley Phipps, Founder

Join the Dream

The U.S. Dream Academy relies on a broad network of engaged partners to fulfill its mission.

For our individual supporters, mentors, other volunteers, sponsoring businesses, foundations, community leaders, teachers and school administrators, and parents and other caregivers, here are some ways you can support our vision right now and change lives:

Donate Now

Each year, more and more of you share in our work through a gift to the Dream Academy. In 2008, Oprah Winfrey gave $3.7 million to the Dream Academy. Won't you join her in support of our DreamKids?

To stay current with the latest Dream Academy news and milestones, please provide just your name, email address, and company name, if applicable.

Corporate Partners

No matter where your business is located, supporting the Dream Academy means making an impact on tomorrow’s workplace, workforce, and world. 

Mentor a DreamKid

If you live in one of the communities where our Learning Centers operate, please consider contributing your time and life experience as a mentor. You will witness first hand the difference your involvement makes. You will find deep rewards in saying, very personally: "I care about the next generation."


If mentoring does not seem like the right role for you, our DreamKids can still benefit greatly from your help. You can help out in Learning Centers, make a presentation to your neighbors or community leaders about the cycle of incarceration, or help raise funds to support young dreams.

Supporters & Volunteers

However you choose to show your support, we invite you to join the Dream today!
