To help in the fight against the spread of COVID-19, our office location is closed and we have developed a response plan for staff, operations and programming.

Find a letter from our President & CEO, Jonathan T. Swain, on our organization’s response to the COVID-19 crisis here.

We are developing and implementing programming pivots over the next several months to continue serving our Scholars virtually. To date we have:

  • Online Scholar Tutoring sessions for core subjects
  • Scholar Virtual Open Forums to support co-hort work
  • Digital Supports for the 6-week Summer Learning program

Unable to host our annual “DreamKeepers” gala we have launched the “Keeping The Dream Alive” fundraising effort with a goal to raise $500,000. Join us for a special VIRTUAL EVENT on May 21, 2020 as we share our journey towards Keeping The Dream Alive! See more information here.

As we continue to closely monitor the pandemic crisis, check this webpage for our latest updates.
