On Thursday, April 27, 2017, LINK Unlimited Scholars will hold its annual DreamKeepers Gala, celebrating over fifty years as Chicago’s only college and career success organization focused solely on economically disadvantaged African-American youth. DreamKeepers celebrates individuals and institutions who have embodied the inspirational dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. King’s dream to provide equal opportunity to all people is at the foundation of the programming we provide, currently serving nearly 600 high school and collegiate scholars every year. As the organization builds on five decades of success, LINK programs are evolving under our Pipelines to Professions model. This approach focuses on college persistence/graduation, career access and training, mentorship, internships, post-collegiate networking, and economic stability over an 8 – 10 year period.
DreamKeepers helps make our programming possible as our largest annual fundraising event.
