Why We Love US Dream Academy
What They Do:
One out of every 12 American children have experienced parental incarceration at some point in their lives. Millions of young people, living in communities across the nation, are exposed to high crime, high poverty, and failing public schools; this, coupled with having an incarcerated parent, with it's corresponding shame and stigma, only add to the dangerous mix of factors which significantly lower the chance of a child's academic success and increase their risk of future incarceration.
US Dream Academy provides the academic and social tools to empower those young people who are most at risk, to achieve success.
Why We're Involved:
The U.S. Dream Academy is an organization that we choose to support because these "difference-makers" help young people "SEE" a brighter future for themselves and their communities. They are tirelessly devoted to equipping and inspiring these future leaders, and they lead with imagination.
We've committed to contributing a portion of our profits from "Lead With Imagination" to support U.S. Dream Academy, along with our ongoing personal commitments of giving.

Their aspiration and approach captivated my imagination! Knowing their team personally, and seeing the care they provide first-hand, is truly a testament to the power of imagination and the positive impact it has in our world. This organization was started by "difference-makers" and we are so grateful for the mission they continue to carry out.
