See Kids Dream partners with schools, a wide range of nonprofit organizations, incredibly generous and mission focused people, and corporate and philanthropic foundations. As a 501 c 3 nonprofit that provides curriculum and supplies to schools free of charge, it takes community support to ensure we reach and engage as many students as we can each year. Typically, our service-learning programs touch upwards of 10,000 students who annually raise funds for nonprofits in their community, conduct supply drives for those in need, and/or create awareness campaigns around the issues most important to them. We welcome financial support at all levels and encourage you to get involved!
Why support service learning?
Service-learning has the unique ability to teach leadership skills while also providing insight into the diverse range of people, challenges, and resources within a community. This type of community engagement allows youth to hear many differing perspectives and to recognize that there is often more to a person or a situation than meets the eye. Our student leaders learn that they have to ask questions and be good listeners in order to understand the big picture. An important goal of our program is to grow the students’ capacity for empathy in the face of solving problems.
