I Have A Dream Foundation outlines a program that has influenced over 15,000 students since it's inception.  Their goal is working to empower children from low-income communities to achieve higher education by providing them with guaranteed tuition to college upon graduating from high school.  Additionally, the program offers support and equips them with the skills, knowledge, and habits they need to gain entry to higher education and succeed in college and beyond.

Local “I Have A Dream” programs sponsor an entire grade level or students in a public elementary school or public housing development.  They provide a year-round program of academic and social services that start when the “Dreamers” are in the early elementary grades and continue all the way through high school. Upon high school graduation, each Dreamer receives guaranteed financial assistance for higher education.
