Dreams Leadership Academy

Enhancing the growth and development of young men


Our mission is to positively affect young,
African American youth by exposing them
to men and women from a variety of
creative and professional experiences to
enhance, mentor, and sow into adulthood.

Dreams Leadership Academy is an academic year-long cohort for young men in the Eighth (8th) grade that will participate in exciting experiences that will enhance their growth and development as young men.  They will meet monthly as a group, and each young man will have their own personal mentor that will be dedicated to spending at least an hour a week with them, checking in on their behavior, grades, and progress while building meaningful relationships with them. DLA participants will also take part in extracurricular and impactful activities, field trips, and lectures.

DLA provides our young men with more touchpoints and opportunities to interact with adult professional men who will sow into their manhood.  We will focus on the key principles of Dreams Academy that include etiquette, financial literacy, and problem-solving and additional opportunities due to the ability to spend more time with them and focus on community service, leadership, relationship building, and holistic living.

The cost for this program is $500.00.  Payment plans are available.  This includes meals and some activities.  Additional costs may incur during the year, but it is our goal to keep this at a minimum.
