DUBUQUE DREAM CENTER MISSION

The Dubuque Dream Center is a Community Outreach Center committed to mobilizing youth and families to build on Dr. King’s Dream of transforming communities by embracing, empowering, and unifying those who live there. We strive to inspire vision and purpose through:

  • ​Impacting Youth,
  • Strengthening Families, and
  • Building Community.

The Dubuque Dream Center strategy — to Impact Youth and Strengthen Families — begins with our In Your Life Mentoring model. On the foundation of genuine relationships, In Your Life Mentors are strategically connected around an individualized plan to provide a child with the assets they need to be successful in school and in life.

Our program is structured to strategically impact students through our Academic Center, Career Development, Spark Activities, Healthy Meals (along with Meal Mentoring), Character Development Curriculum, and Family Engagement. The Dubuque Dream Center’s long-term vision includes holistic initiatives to benefit the entire community. ​Our essential youth impact structure includes:

  • Academic Initiatives,
  • Character Development, and
  • College and Career preparation.
