Teaching soft skills, problem solving, career guidance, and financial literacy
Dreams Academy is for young men ages 7-15. Our students experience activities and thought-provoking dialogue that holistically encourages and teaches soft skills, problem-solving, career guidance, and financial literacy. These sessions are facilitated by predominantly African-American male professionals who presently work in a multitude of fields and vocations and partner organizations that assist us with curricula such as the Akron Police Department, Minority Behavioral Health Group, and Summit County Juvenile Court.

Developing African American Males for Success
Welcome to Dreams Academy and thank you for viewing our website. I hope that you get a detailed view into who we are and what we do for our core audience of young black males. We are currently living through a moment in time where they need to be shown their value and worth, as well as being given as much education and information as necesasry to achieve the highest levels of success that they can. Feel free to contact me to hear more about Dreams Academy. Sign up for our newsletter and always be in the know. We look forward to hearing from you!
Our three focus areas
Etiquette is the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group. We help to develop this image using positive role models, real world training and hands on interactions.
We teach how to process situations and view them as challenge. Team building builds connections and helps to understand that together we can accomplish more.
Money and the understanding of it is essential in the growth and development of a race. Most black men do not experience generational wealth so it is important to educate youth to build generational wealth.
