Our dream – one we invite you to embrace – is to ensure that all children, no matter their start in life, can pursue their own special dreams.
Empower children who are at risk of incarceration to maximize their potential by providing them with academic, social and values enrichment through supportive mentoring and the use of technology.
The U.S. Dream Academy is helping our nation's children reach for their dreams. Through academic, social and values enrichment, we empower those children most at risk of incarceration to believe in themselves and to succeed.
The Philadelphia Learning Center
Recognized as “Center of the Year” in 2008, the Philadelphia Learning Center helps students at G.W. Childs School develop useful skills, positive characters and attainable dreams, despite negative circumstances.
Located in an economically and culturally diverse community in South Philadelphia, the Learning Center provides mentoring and tutoring to students who are falling behind academically, or who have a parent or family member who is currently incarcerated.
The Philadelphia Learning Center also provides a six-week summer program that offers academic enrichment, photography, dance, fitness and music programming in addition to Dream Academy program standards: skills, character and dream-building activities.
