SPARK ACTIVITIES AT
THE DUBUQUE DREAM CENTER
Defined as “Sparks,” these enrichment activities motivate students towards academic achievement and character development. Dream Center enrichment activities are provided through Performing Arts instruction and Club Sports and were chosen based on research, surveys, and data analysis considering the targeted demographics.
In addition instruction, these group/team activities provide underserved youth with structure, discipline, responsibility, and purpose beyond themselves. Youth are expected to maintain school attendance and academic achievement goals as part of our program structure in order to participate in activities. Participants enjoy field trips throughout the school year and an end- of-year awards ceremony. Families are also encouraged to volunteer and get involved in program activities to develop a sense of community.
