What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Young Dreamer Network

Young Dreamers exists to create leaders, and empower youth to become difference makers in their communities both locally and globally. It is made up chiefly of high school students. In chapters around the world that are connected form a network, they are identifying challenges our world faces and addressing these challenges through strategic actions. Our program entails leadership development, service-learning, international volunteer trips and academic scholarships for promising youth to attend quality secondary schools. These are youth who live in places where school is a privilege not a right, and their families are unable to pay for them to attend secondary school.

Population(s) Served

In Vuelta Grande, Guatemala and Ambedkar Nagar, India nearly every child stops going to school after sixth grade, if they make it that far. Most of the women in these villages have very little formal education and many are cannot read. When girls stop going to school, they usually help with household chores, look after younger siblings and some begin working as domestic servants to contribute income to the family or are arranged to be married. Many of them become pregnant and/or marry at an early age (16-20). Our program provides the girls and young women of our Guatemala and India chapters with access to quality education, a forum to discuss and address issues important to them, empowerment through confidence-building experiences, and opportunities for leadership development. The program includes bi-monthy workshops, discussions using group-based curriculum; mentorship and coaching from the senior members to the younger girls; academic scholarships; exposure to local leadership councils; and family planning awareness. There are two locally-based women staffing the program. In addition, we will leverage our relationship with the town councils of each community to involve the girls in community development programs and project planning exercises. We currently have two female Young Dreamers on the El Hato Council, our goal is to get more of our young women exposed to these positions.
