DREAM MA - Community Organizer, Boston
Our program offers youth living in low income housing and year-round, magical experience including Village Mentoring, adventures and summer enrichment programs. Our programs are driven, almost exclusively, by volunteers. WHY WE DREAM... Our Beliefs * We believe that the opportunity gap is unfair and unjust. * We believe that childhood is a precious part of the human experience and worthy of great investment. * We believe that all children have immense potential to contribute to our society and that lost potential for one is lost potential for all. * We believe that change is possible. Our Vision We seek a world in which all children have the opportunities, resources, and relationships necessary to achieve their dreams. Our Mission Our mission is to close the opportunity gap for children living in low-income housing. Cultural Values * We live in the grassroots. We see ourselves as more of a movement than an organization. We value bottom-up development and look to our volunteers for leadership. * We are relationship-oriented. When relationships are done well, they can change the world and build bridges across differences. Relationships are at the center of all we do and are our greatest source of impact, influence, and learning. * We value transparency. We are an open organization and invite all to participate in decision-making. We see honest communication as the foundation for creating trust and understanding. * We like to play. We sing, surprise, act spontaneously, play games, and imagine. We see potential for something magical in every interaction. We think play is the ultimate vehicle or delivering our services. * We think the high dive is fun! Positive risk-taking plays a crucial role in development. By pushing our comfort zones, we broaden our world views and expand our options. * We think anything is possible. Call us naïve...wait a minute, don’t do that! Just join us!
