Dream a Dream empowers young people from vulnerable backgrounds to overcome adversity and flourish in a fast changing world, using a creative life skills approach.
Dream a Dream is a registered, charitable trust empowering young people from vulnerable backgrounds to overcome adversity and flourish in a fast-changing world using a creative life skills approach. At Dream a Dream, we believe in living our lives with empathy and treating everyone with dignity. Our programmes all center around our young people, who we believe all have the ability to overcome adversity. Through our creative life skills approach which focuses on social emotional learning, we enable young people from vulnerable backgrounds to change their script, and give them a chance to thrive.
We run two direct intervention programmes, our After School Life Skills programme, and our Career Connect Programme. Our After School programme works with children ages 8-14, and uses football and arts to teach life skills. The Career Connect Programme equips 14-19 year olds with information, skills and access to opportunities to make a healthy transition to adulthood. The programme teaches life skills, as well as skills such as English speaking, computer skills, and entrepreneurship.
We also run a Teacher Development Programme, which trains teachers on life skills facilitation, and have begun work with state governments to create systemic educational change.
We work on a strong collaborative approach with local charities, corporates, volunteers, governments, expert consultants and a host of national and international strategic partners.
Currently, we work with 10,000 young people a year through our two innovation labs – the After School Life Skills Programme and Career Connect Programme, have trained over 7700 teachers/educators from 206 partners impacting over 1,92,500 children, and have impacted over 1 million children through strategic partnerships with state governments in Delhi and Jharkhand.
