I Have A Dream Foundation
The I Have A Dream Foundation works to ensure that all children have the opportunity to pursue higher education, fulfill their potential, and achieve their dreams. We empower youth in under-resourced communities to graduate from college or post-secondary pathways by equipping them with the skills and knowledge to succeed, along with scholarship support to remove financial barriers. AmeriCorps VISTA Members will help Affiliates in Miami, FL; Atlanta, GA; Hailey, ID; Newark, NJ; New York, NY; Pryor, OK; Dallas, TX; and Milwaukee, WI to create a robust volunteer base, establish community partnerships, and increase access to additional funding thereby helping to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty through a stronger network of volunteer mentors and tutors, and more consistent and effective wraparound support. We are seeking self-motivated, compassionate applicants who enjoy working on behalf of young people and diverse individuals, including Dreamers, their families, and members of the community. Successful candidates will have a passion for social justice and educational equity, the flexibility to work with organizations in an active growth phase, strong attention to detail, and the ability to analyze and solve problems. Serving with our experienced team, you will learn essential skills in outreach and marketing, fundraising, and project management. Most importantly, by raising awareness about our mission and programs, you will make a difference for hundreds of local kids. For more information, go to our website at
